Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: May 5th 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 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 going to look at system backup tools with the goal of adding new software as well as updating those older entries. Whether its incremental file archiving, differential backups or system snapshots its all fair game. Join us this Friday so we aren't left unattended as we run the backups!
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 Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
