Friday 'Frankenstein' Directory IRC meetup: October 28th starting at 1pm EDT/17:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Oct 27, 2016 02:15 PM
Join the FSF and friends Friday, October 28th, from 1pm to 4pm EDT (17:00 to 20:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a special theme of bringing new entries to life like Dr. Frankenstein.

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

Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to discover free software. Each entry in the Directory 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 we're playing the part of Dr. Frankenstein by adding and approving new entries to the directory, but our creations won't be monsters! Helping to grow the directory is one of the best ways to make sure it is a great resource for users looking for free software they can use. While we've focused the past few meetings on improving and updating existing entries, there are still plenty of packages looking to make their way onto the directory.

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 Directory today! There are also weekly FSD Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
