Free Software Directory meeting recap for August 12th, 2016

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Aug 16, 2016 04:56 PM
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the last Free Software Directory meeting.

Every week free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on to help improve the Free Software Directory. This recaps the work we accomplished on the Friday, August 12th, 2016 meeting.

Mordcai discovered that the Participation Guide's formatting was broken and got it fixed, and Mviinama helped fix some links as well. Donaldr3 approved a few minor changes, with updated versions for Bas55 and Anonymine. Nazghul needed an updated website and versions. Adfeno announced the creation of a script to help with licensing check, and updated projects on their todo list. The whole channel helped to discuss a project with a dependency on a package with a world-record candidate for longest licensing file. The resolution was to file an issue at the project seeking a fix for the licensing issue. The meeting ended with getting Adfeno's script up on the directory and helping choose a license for it.

It was a busy meeting, but there's still lots of work left to do. If you want to help out, join us every Friday in #fsf on from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC).
