We want a world where every citizen in every country will enjoy the best e-government services,
regardless of their gender, race, religion, or the economic development of their countries...
This dream will only come true through the availability of the best open & free software.
Everybody is welcome to participate in free-gov. Know how may you get involved"

Free-gov is free software for free governments. This is a people's initiative (there is no "company" behind this project), and everybody is welcome to download the code, to study it, to improve it, to find errors, write translations, documentation... or just to spread the word!

Free-gov is 100% free software, because freedom and independence are important to us, and also should be important to serious governments.

 How to be in contact...

Mailing lists

Mailing lists are the main communications way of free-gov developers.

A mailing list is a service that forms an email-based communication channel between a number of subscribers. Mailing lists are usually set up as follows:

Note that you do not need any special software to use the mailing list. All you need is a web browser (for subscribing) and a regular email address (for reading and writing).


A newsletter is a document periodically sent by mail to subscribers. Free-gov newsletter informs, announces, reminds, advises, instructs, advertises, and communicates anything about the project. Free-gov newsletter is a short publication issued 2 to 6 times at year. This is a good way to keep up to date with free-gov project news.

Documentation wiki

Wikis are collaborative websites which can be directly edited using only a web browser, often by anyone with access to it. They can be used as a means for people to collaborate on documents, organise projects, publish and update information of mutual interest.

Free-gov wiki is the main source for technical documentation about free-gov software.
