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, June 2nd, 2017 meeting.

For this meeting we looked at security software. As usual we worked through the entries, updating and improving them as needed. Unfortunately, one entry had to be retired since the code couldn't be found, even in archives. Balancing this winnowing though was the addition of some new programs to the Directory.

We talked some of ways to improve forensic analysis of file systems, including changes to the data recorded by the file system. The meeting also provided some guidance to an individual on hardware selection along with suggesting they look for detailed information on

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).
