Free Software Directory meeting recap for July 14th, 2017

by Ted Teah Contributions Published on Jul 19, 2017 02:32 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 irc.freenode.org to help improve the Free Software Directory. This blog recaps the work we accomplished at the Friday, July 14th, 2017 meeting.

This week we looked at software for organizing. mutante cleverly pointed out that there was great software in the Directory for organizing the software, namely the Directory software itself! A new program was added that allows you to submit links to the Internet Archive for storage. In addition to working on organizing software, some time was spent on unapproved entries. The backlog of entries is now down to just a limited number of smaller extensions for web browsers. Participants also discussed the conditions under which computer languages are Turing complete, as well as similarities between sheet music and source code.

This coming week, efforts to expand the Directory import project will take the forefront.

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. EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC).
