Free Software Directory meeting recap for January 27th, 2017

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Feb 01, 2017 10:10 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, January 27th, 2017 meeting.

This past week the meeting was about getting new entries added to the directory. Towards that end, we focused on shrinking the backlog of submitted but unapproved pages. While the meeting was sparsely attended, mangeurdenuage and others were able to process a large chunk of the backlog. The unapproved pages backlog declined by over thirty during the course of the meeting. There was also a lot of work done outside the meeting by people who couldn't make it this week. There are still more entries seeking entry to the FSD, however a sizable chunk appear to be actually approved pages that are showing as unapproved due to being moved. We'll investigate the issue and continue working to add more and more entries until the backlog is gone.

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).
