Recap of Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: October 10

by Joshua Gay Contributions Published on Oct 10, 2014 06:01 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 once again comes after a very active week of users updating and adding new entries to the Directory. We were delighted to be joined by Ruben Rodriguez, the Trisquel GNU/Linux project leader and recently became the GNU IceCat maintainer. With Ruben's help, we came-up with a strategy adding all of the GNU IceCat extensions to the Directory that are listed on the IceCat homepage as well as from the Trisquel project's web site. We then had a short strategy meeting to figure out how to deal with the 101 separate utilities that are all packaged as part of the GNU coreutils package. We decided that each program should not get its own page, but instead we will list them on a Collection. So while this didn't leave us much time to add too many new entries to the Directory today, we did a great job of coming-up with a coordinated strategy for adding hundreds of new programs to the directory in coming weeks!
