Recap of Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: August 1

by Joshua Gay Contributions Published on Aug 01, 2014 06:21 PM
Join the FSF and friends every Friday to help improve the Free Software Directory by adding new entries and updating existing ones.

Today's Friday Free Software Directory IRC Meeting was energetic and productive -- as IRC newcomer noted: "what is this all about? I feel excited!". And, for good reason: this summer has been an exciting and productive one on the Directory. One of the big reasons for this success is due to contributions of Morten "Jobbe" Jakobsen, who has been helping to run our IRC meetings, as well as to make sure that the many contributions and submissions from other volunteers are handled in a timely manner. Jobbe and the other volunteers and contributors continue to increase as do the number of new entries and updates.

Four of the entries we published today were:

  • Privacy Badger: Browser extension that detects and prevents third-party tracking (License: GPLv3+)
  • Silicon Empire: Program to Burn CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays (License: GPLv3)
  • Motif: Distribution for the Motif user interface component toolkit (License: LGPLv2+)
  • mu: Maildir indexer/searcher + GNU Emacs mail client + Guile bindings (License: GPLv3+)

In addition to publishing and updating entries, we also made some cosmetic improvements to our link icons and templates.

We hope you can join Jobbe and the rest of us, too, next week! You can find out how to attend our Friday Free Software Directory IRC Meetings by checking our blog or subscribing to the RSS feed.
