FSF Free Software Fundation Software Directory

Postby Michat » Sat Oct 01, 2011 1:34 pm

Hi, all. http://FSF.org have launched a new web version of the Freesoftware directory with more than 6.500 freedom software titles where of course FlightGear is included. However that information dates from 2005.

Having a first look on it, the FlightGear information is not so easy to Find because the project is indexed by Flight Gear instead of FlightGear. Once I find the link for the project, I see that the information is outdated and some links are broken.

Please, could anybody with more entity than me update this information? There is an easy button to file a bug or make a suggestion.

Thanks.

Good spotting! :D

It seems that their software database hasn't been maintained for years, FlightGear is only one example... :(

Weeks ago I took contact with http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Main_Page?action=purge
Suggesting via wiki to amend Flight Gear for FlightGear (single word).

FG is under Hobbies/aviation directory and its is difficult to find.
The program's description is outdated.
There is and irc channel assistance to improve the directory. However I can't use it. My GPU crashed months ago. So i'm writting these lines via 1.4Kb upload speed connection via neighbourg android phone.

I'm so sorry, can't do more for the moment.

Please can anybody help improving this directory.

Thanks all.
Michat.
