Free Software Directory meeting recap for May 19th, 2017

by Ted Teah Contributions Published on May 23, 2017 02:43 PM
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the last Free Software Directory meeting.

Every week free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on irc.freenode.org to help improve the Free Software Directory. This recaps the work we accomplished at the Friday, May 19th, 2017 meeting.

This week the Directory meeting looked at education software. During the meeting, we had numerous pieces of software being offered up for inclusion. In addition, new software was added to the Directory, as well as some older entries getting an update. The meeting also spent some time exploring the relationship between software and educational institutions. The dialogue centered on how these educational institutions indoctrinate dependence on nonfree software and ways to shift this paradigm. AlKamoD returned this week and was getting ready to run tests to automate certain tasks, the results of this are anticipated.

If you would like to help update the directory, meet with us every Friday in #fsf on irc.freenode.org from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC).
