Join the FSF and friends Friday, September 1st, from 12:00
p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC) to help improve the Free
Software Directory, with this week's theme of "Back to School."
Participate in supporting the [Directory] by adding new entries and
updating existing ones. We will be on IRC in the [#fsf channel on
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 to be a
resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!
This week we return to school, with a focus on educational software. With many kids heading off to class, we want to make sure they have all the free software tools they need to succeed. We'll be looking to update and add new software useful for students and educators.
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
