Friday Fight for Freedom Free Software Directory IRC meetup: January 13th starting at 12 p.m. EST/17:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Jan 12, 2017 09:48 AM
Join the FSF and friends Friday, January 13th, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST (17:00 to 20:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a theme of working on packages useful to activists.

Participate in supporting the FSD by adding new entries and updating existing ones. We will be on IRC in the #fsf channel on irc.freenode.org.

Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to discover free software. Each entry in the FSD contains a wealth of useful information, from basic category and descriptions, to providing detailed info about version control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing info that has been carefully checked by FSF staff and trained volunteers.

While the FSD has been and continues to be a great resource to the world over the past decade, it has the potential of being a resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!

This week's theme is focusing on software to help people fight for a cause. Activists need software for organizing and communicating, and for protecting their privacy from spying eyes. We want the FSD to be a great tool for anyone working to improve the world, so we have to have all the software they need listed and up to date in the FSD. Come help build the future with us this Friday!

If you are eager to help and you can't wait or are simply unable to make it onto IRC on Friday, our participation guide will provide you with all the information you need to get started on helping the FSD today! There are also weekly FSD Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
