Free Software Directory meeting recap, April 2018

by Ted Teah Contributions Published on Apr 27, 2018 11:48 AM
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the Free Software Directory meetings in the month of April!

Every week, free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on 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 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST (16:00 to 19:00 UTC).
