Free Software Directory meeting recap for December 30th, 2016

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Jan 05, 2017 02:54 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, December 30th, 2016 meeting.

Last week's theme was looking back on 2016 and working on some of the projects we started throughout the year. There was a good long discussion about improving tools for working on the Directory. Particularly, the need for a bug tracker for working on feature requests and reporting issues with the Directory. mattl offered to help set one up for the Directory. There was also Discussion about particular features that could be added to the Directory, such as the ability to upload pictures. More discussion will have to happen on these topics in deciding what new resources would be most useful.

ballpen also joined us and was trained on how to work on the Directory, and we look forward to them joining us again at future meetings. The meeting and year wrapped up with adding many new packages, which will be the theme of the first meeting of 2017.

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 (17:00 to 20:00 UTC).
