Recap of Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: October 3

by Joshua Gay Contributions Published on Oct 03, 2014 06:43 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 (FSD) IRC Meeting comes after a very active week of users updating and adding new entries to the Directory. User Mviinama made over 80 edits alone! And, I was happy to see that such productivity continued during our meeting today, as well.

Two new packages added today worth highlighting are:

  • Traccar, a Java server that displays map and other data from various GPS tracking devices. It is under the Apache 2.0 license.
  • Seafile, a server based filestore with clients for multiple different platforms. It serves as a replacement for SaaSS such as dropbox. The server is licensed under the Apache 2.0 license and clients
    are licensed GNU GPL version 3 (only).

In addition to adding new packages and updating many more, we also had a lively discussion about font licensing and about the MPL, and we brainstormed some ideas for new icons and other art to brighten up the pages on the Directory.

You too can join in our discussions and help improve the Directory: find out how to attend our Friday Free Software Directory IRC Meetings by checking our blog or by subscribing to the RSS feed.
