Since I no longer use freecad myself I am not very interested in
continuing to maintain it. If nobody steps up, I will move it to AUR in
about a week.

Some notes:
 - The current release is over a year old, a new one should come
 - There is an open bug[1] that leads me to believe that freecad might
   use a bundeled version of coin3d which contains a bundeled version of
   expat that is very old and may also contain security
 - I haven't yet managed to build freecad from git master with qt5
   support. Looks like it needs pyside2 for this, but that doesn't have
   a stable release and we don't pacakge random commits from a git
 - freecad 0.16 (current version) blocks opencascade from being updated
   to >= 7.0. 0.17 should be compatible at least with 7.0, possibly with
