LibrePlanet Free Software Directory Sprint & IRC meetup: Sunday March 26th starting at 2 p.m. EDT/18:00 UTC

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Mar 20, 2017 03:29 PM
Join the FSF and friends Sunday March 26th, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. EDT (18:00 to 21:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory (FSD), with an in-person Directory sprint at LibrePlanet

Participate in supporting the FSD by adding new entries and updating existing ones. We will be in room 26-142 at LibrePlanet and 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!

LibrePlanet is finally here, and that means we get to have an in-person Directory sprint. If you are attending LibrePlanet, please join us to help train new volunteers and help get them up and running on the Directory. Make sure to bring your laptop so you can edit and improve the Directory. Both Donald and Ted will be there to guide the session so please come by and join the fun in room 26-142. If you can't be there in person, then make sure to join us on IRC to help welcome all the new friends.

If you are eager to help and you can't wait or are simply unable to make it on Sunday, our participation guide will provide you with all the information you need to get started on helping the FSD today! There are also weekly FSD Meetings pages that everyone is welcome to contribute to before, during, and after each meeting.
