Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: August 4th starting at 12:00 p.m. EDT/16:00 UTC
Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to discover free software. Each entry in the Directory 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 Directory has been and continues to be a great resource to the world for over a decade now, it has the potential of being a resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!
What is old is new again as we return to adding new packages to the Directory. We've really done some great work in smashing through the backlog of pages awaiting approval, so now it's time to finish that backlog and add even more new packages. We'll also be discussing more about the importation project, which has the potential to add thousands of packages from Debian in one fell swoop.
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 Directory Meeting pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
