Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: April 21st starting at 12:00 p.m. EDT/16:00 UTC

Join the FSF and friends Friday, April 21st, 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 table top games 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!

After last weeks focus on financial software it seemed like a good chance this week to break its monopoly. This week we are going to work on games, and not just any kind of games. This week we'll be taking a big risk by focusing on table top ones. Although there are currently over thirty games listed, this section needs to grow big like a battleship. Come this Friday, we hope you'll deal yourself in and play a round with us.

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.
