Free Software Directory meeting recap for July 21st, 2017

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Jul 27, 2017 02:53 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 to help improve the Free Software Directory. This blog recaps the work we accomplished at the Friday, July 21st, 2017 meeting.

This week we returned to the classics, looking at entries that haven't had an update in a while. eric23 worked on many older entries, and jxself helped to track down source and Web pages when they were hard to find. Juesto joined the channel randomly but got into the mix, learning how to update entries. aindilis also made an appearance and was excited to get started on the import project. They had been working on their own project for cataloging free software, and so they had the know-how to jump in and get the import working for the Directory. We look forward to working with them in the future to hopefully add thousands more packages to the Directory!

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