The LibrePlanet wiki is a valuable resource for anyone interested in free software. The wiki has resources for everything from finding and connecting with local free software teams to handy repositories of free software advocacy materials for helping educate those around you.
As a community-led effort, the LibrePlanet wiki's growth relies on contributions from activists like yourself. That's why we are scheduling a window of time to work on the wiki together. Plus, the campaigns team will be making ourselves available to help with any questions that you have in real time.
We're calling this event a "LibrePlanet Wiki Edit Fest," and our hope is that we'll welcome a few new people to edit the wiki and that we'll be able to make progress on improving some of the pages on the wiki, an ever-growing and important community resource. The only requirement to being able to edit the wiki yourself is that you have an account through the FSF, which you can do either by joining the FSF as an associate member or by creating a non-member account without charge.
- Time: Wednesday, August 23, 12:30–14:00 EDT (16:30–18:00 UTC)
- Format: Virtual workshop, coordinated over BBB and IRC
- Event link: https://www.fsf.org/events/libreplanet-wiki-edit-fest-is-on-july-26-come-join-us
- Registration: https://my.fsf.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=124
The interactive workshop will be coordinated via both BigBlueButton (BBB) and IRC. If your preference is video chat, please register and join us via BBB, and if your preference is text chat you will be able to ask questions via IRC at #libreplanet on Libera.Chat. The BBB link will be sent to you upon registration. Regardless of your preference, as always, you will be able to join entirely with free (as in freedom) software.
This is the second time we have hosted such an event. Our hope is to host LibrePlanet wiki edit fests on a regular basis, such as the fourth Wednesday of the month, every month. We will be using these first event as a test to gauge interest in such events and make future plans based on this. If this is something that interests you and you are able to attend, please join us and participate. We predict that events such as these will really help to nurture this important community resource.
We look forward to working together with you to improve this valuable resource.
