Friends and Family Friday Directory IRC meetup: November 25th starting at 1 p.m. EST/18:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Nov 23, 2016 09:38 AM
Join the FSF and friends Friday, November 25th, 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 inviting friends and family to volunteer on the directory.

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

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 friends and family. We have a great team of regulars showing up to help improve the directory each week, but as the saying goes, the more the merrier. So this week we're hoping that you invite your friends and family to join in on the fun. We'll be focusing on training new volunteers on how to update and improve the directory. We'll be continuing work on other projects from previous weeks as well.

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.
