Friday 'Meeting of the Undead' Directory IRC meetup: October 7th
Join the FSF and friends Friday, October 7th, from 12pm to 3pm EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory.
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 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 we're having the 'Meeting of the Undead' to track down dead links on the directory. In previous meetings we came across several packages with non-functioning external links. Often these packages are still maintained but just at on a new site. Thanks to the help of adfeno and Iankelling we've put together a list of these zombie links that we want to raise from the dead. Join us in this spooky-themed meeting and help make the directory a more lively place.
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.
