glTF Exporter won't properly export linked collections if 'Selected objects' option is toggled
Needs Triage, NormalPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system: Windows 10

Blender Version
2.83

Short description of error
glTF Exporter won't properly export linked collections if 'Selected objects' option is toggled and those collections are selected. This use to work as intended before 2.83.
The .glb do get exported but the objects in linked collections are not in the file.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Create a .blend with any object under a collection and save. Create new blend, link the previous collection, try to export it with 'Selected objects' option toggled. Test the .glb in a viewer like this one https://gltf-viewer.donmccurdy.com/
(Note that I've only tested for .glb, this might still work for .gltf)

I cannot reproduce this with either the latest stable or current development versions of Blender:

Please try the latest daily build: https://builder.blender.org/download/

Go to File → Defaults → Load Factory Settings and then load your file to see if you still can reproduce this issue.

If the problem persists, please give us more clear instructions on how to reproduce it from scratch.

The problem is present with both versions (2.83.1 and the daily build of 2.90). Note that the .glb do get exported but the objects in the linked collections just aren't present in the file (or not fully present). Did you test your export in a viewer like this one: https://gltf-viewer.donmccurdy.com/ ?
