Friday Goodbye 2016 Free Software Directory IRC meetup: December 30th starting at 12 p.m. EST/17:00 UTC

Join the FSF and friends Friday, December 30th, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST (17:00 to 20:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a theme of looking back on 2016.

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

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's theme is looking back on 2016. The Directory has gone through a lot of changes in the past year, with many different projects and themes focusing our work. With this last meeting of the year we will be looking back and focusing on our favorite projects and goals we started during the year. With 2017 just around the corner there is still a lot of work to do on these projects, so we want to cap the year off by making some real progress.

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.
