Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: June 30th 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!
Back on this day in 2000 then U.S. President Clinton signed into law the legislature that generally provided for the initial validity of electronic signatures and contracts in the U.S. Legislation like this enacted the world over laid the groundwork for a sea change in transactions. This week the Directory meeting is dealing in ecommerce code. Be it a shopping cart or authorization system its all in the basket this week.
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.
