The FPA public handbook covers everything about how we operate the FreeCAD Project Association. As part of our core value of transparency, you’re invited to study, learn, copy and offer feedback. Seriously, we welcome feedback!

This handbook is modeled on the GitLab “handbook first” concept. It should be the authoritative record of how the FPA operates. It documents the consensus opinion of why various rules exist, procedures, tools, expectations, and lessons learned.

In general, if someone asks a question about the FPA, you should be able to answer with a link to a handbook page. If the required page doesn’t exist, write it! This document is collaboratively maintained by all active FPA members.

This handbook has several major sections:




Resource access and management

Programs and Initiatives
