Free Software Directory meeting recap for November 4th, 2016
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 on the Friday, November 4th, 2016 meeting.
Last week was a free for all meeting where we worked on a variety of projects. Iankelling worked through a huge chunk of the approval backlog, approving tons of new entries for the directory. beloved had some suggestions for updating the home page of the directory, such as linking to the meeting announcements there, which we were able to implement. They also had some suggestions about the requirements, which they're putting to the mailing list for further discussion. There's more work to be done in refining the requirements to ensure the directory is a great resource for finding only freedom respecting packages, and we will be discussing that more at the next meeting. The upcoming meeting will have a live component as well as we have some space at the upcoming Seattle GNU/Linux conference to work as a group. We hope to see more of you there!
If you would like to help update the directory, meet with us every Friday in #fsf on irc.freenode.org from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST (18:00 to 20:00 UTC).
