Deep versioning of shared assets

When we create a shared macro on the Gallery, the desire is that we are able to:

- publish this down to users simply and seamlessly

- Allow them to use these assets in their canvasses

- Allow them to simply update to the latest version of the asset on an existing canvas.

 

Unfortunately - right now the only way to distribute shared macros is to create a shared folder; and the only way to manage version upgrades of a shared macro is to manually find every single usage and manually upgrade.

@SeanAdams: We could extend the ask to extend a little further to include trace ability as well. 1) Admins/macro owners can find all related canvases using a specific macro (all version) thus providing visibility into consumers & macro penetrability. 2) Also, if we could have an alert sent to all canvas owners when the linked macro is upgraded, that would be great!
