FSD meeting recap 2022-10-21

by Craig Topham Contributions Published on Oct 24, 2022 10:48 AM
Check out the great work our volunteers accomplished at today's Free Software Directory (FSD) IRC meeting.

Every week, free software activists from around the world come together in #fsf on Libera.Chat to help improve the FSD, which is a catalog of useful free software that runs under free GNU-like systems (not limited to the GNU operating system and its GNU/Linux variants) and a project of the Free Software Foundation (FSF). This recaps the work we accomplished at the Friday, October 21, 2022 meeting, where we saw a a new program added, several entries updated, and several conversations, one of which was on the role of binaries in the FSD (hint: the FSD only deals with source code).

New programs approved with licensing check:

Programs with version bumps or minor edits:

  • Ccache, a compiler cache.
  • Cryptsetup, a utility used to conveniently setup disk encryption.
  • Pacman-arch, a library-based package manager with dependency support.

Join us each week to help improve the FSD every Friday in #fsf on Libera.Chat from 12:00 to 15:00 EDT (16:00 to 19:00 UTC). Find out upcoming FSD IRC Meetings by subscribing to our events RSS feed.
