Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: April 14th starting at 12:00 p.m. EDT/16:00 UTC

Join the FSF and friends Friday, April 14th, from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory, with this week's theme of working on financial software entries in the Directory.

Participate in supporting the Directory 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 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 Directory 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!

For the folks in the U.S., mid-April often brings dollars and cents to the mind as the tax-filing deadline looms. To help anyone frantically looking for some last minute free software to help them calculate or keep track of their money, we'll be focusing on software for financial and other math-related uses.

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 Directory Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
