FSD meeting recap 2022-11-25

by Craig Topham Contributions Published on Nov 30, 2022 05:27 PM
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, November 25, 2022 meeting, where we saw a one new program added and two entries updated. We also discussed and learned what it could mean for a free program to depend on a platform like Docker. If a program requires Docker in order to be available, it runs the danger of introducing difficult to detect nonfree dependencies, so we must be cautious when we discover a Docker configuration file or the prerequisite of Docker to run an otherwise free program.

New programs approved with licensing check:

  • Movim is a distributed social network built on top of XMPP

Programs with version bumps or minor edits:

  • Fases are simple coreutils for a fully functional UNIX-like system
  • Ccache, a compiler cache, received a version bump.

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