Friday Ted Teah Directory IRC meetup: December 9th starting at 12 p.m. EST/17:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Dec 08, 2016 02:14 PM
Join the FSF and friends Friday, December 9th, 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 welcoming back former and now current FSF staff member Ted Teah.

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 welcoming back our old friend Ted Teah, who previously worked at the FSF and is now back for round two. Ted had worked on the directory before it became a volunteer project, and so has personally added many entries to the directory. So as he gets back into the swing of things, we'll be reviewing and updating entries that he added long ago.

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.
