Live from SeaGL it's the Friday Directory IRC meetup: November 11th starting at 1 p.m. EST/18:00 UTC

Join the FSF and friends Friday, November 11th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST (18:00 to 21:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a in person meeting at the Seattle GNU/Linux conference.

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 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 we're having an in person meeting at the Seattle GNU/Linux conference. If you are going to be at the conference (attendance is gratis!) join Iankelling and donaldr3 in the expo hall at the usual meeting time (10:00 a.m. PST) for a directory hackfest. If you can't make it to the conference, we'll still be working in the #fsf channel, so make sure to join us their as well.

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.
