External refsets are not developed or maintained in the IHTSDO Refset Management & Translation Tool.  Rather external refsets are listed as pointers to refsets that are hosted elsewhere.  

A URL is provided for each external refset indicating where the reference set can be obtained.  Many of the features of the the IHTSDO Refset Management & Translation Tool do not apply to external refsets.
