Free Software Directory meeting recap for February 17th, 2017

by Ted Teah Contributions Published on Feb 23, 2017 11:24 AM
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 at the Friday, February 17th, 2017 meeting.

We focused this past week on clearing the stack. The Directory continues to expand. This has led to a backlog of entries awaiting approval. Drilling through this backlog has been a reoccurring task for the Directory. Between us and progress were some seriously dense programs, in terms of their source code, which we powered through during the meeting. This cleared the way for simpler approvals in the future. A conversation came up regarding the user access controls for the Directory, and we also discussed the history of the formatting of licensing files.

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).
