FPA Website and Handbook

The FreeCAD Project Asso­ci­a­tion (FPA) was found­ed on the ideals of trans­paren­cy and account­abil­i­ty: to that end, we’ve been work­ing hard on mak­ing our web­site a use­ful source of infor­ma­tion about the orga­ni­za­tion, its goals, and its initiatives.

This past week we launched a revamped ver­sion of our web­site that includes the orga­ni­za­tion’s char­ter, bud­get, and our new Hand­book. The Hand­book is based on the ideas from Git­Lab’s “Hand­book First” scheme, in which any­time some­one has a ques­tion about the orga­ni­za­tion it should be answer­able by a ref­er­ence to a spe­cif­ic part of the hand­book. When we encounter ques­tions that aren’t answered by the hand­book, a new entry is added to it with the answer, so it always pro­vides the most author­i­ta­tive, up-to-date infor­ma­tion about our activities.

You’ll also find a list of FPA ini­tia­tives (right now, the Devel­op­ment Fund and the FOSDEM Trav­el Grants pro­gram), con­tact infor­ma­tion for the orga­ni­za­tion, infor­ma­tion on how to donate, and more. In fact, if you have a ques­tion about the Asso­ci­a­tion that is not answered by the hand­book, please con­tact us so we can add it.

  1. Very good, I like the web­page, this helps a lot with trans­paren­cy as it was a bit of pain to nav­i­gate the github repo before
