Free Software Directory meeting recap, May 2018

by Ted Teah Contributions Published on May 29, 2018 11:50 AM
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at the Free Software Directory meetings in the month of May!

Every week, free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on to help improve the Free Software Directory. We had an exciting month working on the Directory with our wonderful stable of volunteers. These folks show up week in and week out to improve the Directory. It's also important to note the valiant efforts of those volunteers who can't make an appearance at the meeting proper, but still plug away at Directory entries during the week.

This month saw our backlog of entries reduced by 75%, but the big news is that the Directory welcomes, and is lucky to have David_Hedlund as a Directory intern this summer.

One area that will see improvement is the introduction of a dedicated and tailored IRC bot addressing the specific needs of the Directory. This will better highlight the Directory meetings both before and during. Work is also going to be done this summer on the entry import scripts, which among other things allow for the importing of full repositories into 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. EST (16:00 to 19:00 UTC).
