I hope this article is useful for anyone interested in the state of .DWG support in libre software:

Let me know if the article lacks anything.

Despite the name, LibreDWG and LibreCAD have legal difference issue LibreCAD is GPLv2 only and LibreDWG GPLv3+.
So anyone can link them directly, LibreCAD have different DWG library, that is worster than LibreDWG. You can however transform your dwg in a dxf and then open it with LibreCAD.
There is also a proof of concept of LibreCAD3 (new version totaly rewrited) on github that can solve the issue, but is still in a very early stage.

Sorry for my bad english.

Any tutorials to set-up LibreCAD with  LibreDWG  to make it work on a DWG file?
