Free Software Directory meeting recap for January 20th, 2017
Every week free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on irc.freenode.org to help improve the Free Software Directory. This recaps the work we accomplished at the Friday, January 20th, 2017 meeting.
This past week the meeting focused on games and game development
tools. Games are integral in the human experience, and as such are a
worthy subject for the Directory. Game development tools are of
interest following the adage of "teaching a person to fish," as well
as serving as a means of expression. These tools include those
necessary to create the art for the game and not just to the tools
that aid in the writing of code. In addition to updating numerous
existing entires, some new games were added as well.
The meeting included a lively discussion of free software in game development. Our discussion included the role of art files in games, including their licensing. It even touched on what is the meaning of free software.
If you would like to help update the directory, meet with us every Friday in #fsf on irc.freenode.org from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST (17:00 to 20:00 UTC).
