Friday New Beginnings Directory IRC meetup: December 2nd starting at 1 p.m. EST/18:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Dec 01, 2016 11:41 AM
Join the FSF and friends Friday, December 2nd, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST (18:00 to 21:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with this week having a theme of new beginnings.

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, dto 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 new beginnings. With new volunteers joining us from last weeks meeting, and the fact that we haven't had a meeting focused on adding new entries to the directory, it's time to focus a bit on the new. We'll of course be discussing ongoing projects as well, but this week we want to make sure the directory keeps growing even as we do the work on the infrastructure needed to make it better.

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.
