Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: September 16th

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Sep 15, 2016 09:35 AM
Join the FSF and friends every Friday to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a special theme of updating entries for accessibility software.

Join the FSF and friends Friday, September 16th, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory.

Participate in supporting the Free Software Directory 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 Free Software 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!

This week we're having a special theme focusing on updating entries for accessibility software. Free software is for everyone, but unless we make quality tools that everyone can use, many people will be left out. If you have the knowledge and know how to discuss improving the accessibility of the directory itself, we'd also love to have you join 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 FSD Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
