Friday Free for All Directory IRC meetup: November 4th starting at 1pm EDT/17:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Nov 03, 2016 10:05 AM
Join the FSF and friends Friday, November 4th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EDT (17:00 to 20:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a free for all.

Participate in supporting the FSD by adding new entries and updating existing ones. We will be on IRC in the #fsf channel on freenode.

Tens of thousands of people visit each month to discover free software. Each entry in the FSD contains a wealth of useful information, from basic category and descriptions, to providing detailed info about version control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing info that has been carefully checked by FSF staff and trained volunteers.

While the FSD has been and continues to be a great resource to the world over the past decade, it has the potential of being a resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!

This week we're having a free for all meeting. We've had many themed meetings over the past few weeks that started up interesting projects that could still use some work. So this week we're going to be focusing on the projects that we're personally interested in working on. While even themed meetings leave room for anyone to work on whatever they please, this week we want to focus on whatever we please.

If you are eager to help and you can't wait or are simply unable to make it onto IRC on Friday, our participation guide will provide you with all the information you need to get started on helping the Directory today! There are also weekly FSD Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
