Free Software Directory meeting recap, April 2018
Every week, free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on irc.freenode.org to help improve the Free Software Directory. We had an exciting month working on the Directory with our wonderful stable of volunteers. These folks show up week in and week out to improve the Directory. It's also important to note the valiant efforts of those volunteers who can't make an appearance at the meeting proper, but still plug away at Directory entries during the week.
During April, the Directory passed 16,000 entries. At this pace, the Directory will be more than halfway to 17,000 by the end of 2018. On the mailing list this month, there were numerous matters presented: one matter under consideration is changing the Directory so that volunteers can upload the icon of a program. So for example, the Emacs logo would be listed next to the name of the program in the Directory entry.
If you would like to help update the Directory, meet with us every Friday in #fsf on irc.freenode.org from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST (16:00 to 19:00 UTC).
