Free Software Directory meeting recap for January 13th, 2017

by Donald Robertson III Contributions Published on Jan 19, 2017 09:50 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 on the Friday, January 13th, 2017 meeting.

Last week's theme was working on packages useful for activism. We mainly focused on tools for protecting privacy. For activists all around the world being able to communicate and organize in private is unfortunately of paramount importance. Fortunately we were able to work through and update most of the packages in the privacy category. For several packages we were able to file issues with their maintainers to correct problems with their licensing. More work will need to be done on other types of tools for activists.

The meeting finished with a discussion about gaming on free software. Once you're done fighting for freedom you need a good way to unwind, which is why making sure Directory entries on free software games are up to date is also important. We'll be working on gaming in the next upcoming meeting.

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).
