Status Report 14 April, 2011

  • Staging server: We have created a staging server called; if you want access, simply log-in with your FSF account and then email me (jgay) and I will give you administrative access.
  • Data migration: To the best of our knowledge, anyhow. We believe we have successfully moved all of the data from the existing over to the wiki.
  • Forms/Templates: Are not yet complete, but we are rapidly approaching completion. When this is complete, testing and review will need to be done before we can launch. Further notes on workflow below; although detailed documentation on how this wiki is organized (Properties, Templates, Forms, et al) is not yet completed.
  • Backlog of work: There is a backlog of work (updates and new submissions). We will likely create an RT queue to deal with such work. Eventually we may be able to move task-management over to the wiki itself, but, currently such requests are in RT.


Our basic workflow is that users with administrative credentials will be able to edit and post entires to the directory. Such entries can be made visible to internal search and querying of the wiki as well as crawled by search engines. The entires can be added or edited using a form, Form:Entry (creation of detailed documentation for how forms, templates, etc. are organized should be coming soon).

Users without administrative credentials will not be able to edit pages/entries within the Main namespace. However, they will be able to contribute new submissions to the Review namespace. Pages in this namespace will not appear in search results or queries on the site, nor will they be crawled by search engines. Users will be able to submit new entries using the form, Form:Submit.

When Entries have been approved, administrators can move them from the Review namespace over to the Main namespace for official publication on the Free Software Directory.


Everybody loves screenshots! When will we be getting those here? Mviinama (talk) 22:54, 6 April 2013 (EDT)

Scripting Lanuages just have empty pages

Is there a particular reason why popular scripting languages, have empty pages with no content. Perhaps people actually browse the free software directory and might be deterred and uncertain as to whether the scripting languages are free (as in freedom) when they find an empty page.

See: Python, Perl, Ruby

Ajn (talk) 14:51, 11 April 2013 (EDT)

You are right, these do deserve entries. I figured out the reason the pages were created blank -- it's nothing special, more of a mishap than something intentional. Basically the pages used to have the license for Perl, Ruby, and Python respectively; when the licenses were moved over to License:Perl, License:Python, License:Ruby, the normal pages were left behind as blank pages -- probably due to an unintential space or blank line. --Jgay (talk) 15:11, 12 April 2013 (EDT)

Spam and 404s

How are we supposed to report spam and to deal with dead pages, is there some policy? Mviinama (talk) 10:03, 12 June 2014 (EDT)

Suggestion: page for each KOffice component (or Calligra)

KSpread and Calligra Sheets don't show up when one searches for "spreadsheet" or looks in Category/Business/spreadsheet.

After LibreOffice, this is probably the most powerful spreadsheet software we have, so it's worth adding.

The Calligra software seems to be totally missing. Calligra is a fork of KOffice and has, AFAICT, replaced KOffice.

I haven't looked at how the directory usually handles this, but I'm guessing the best fix for the search problem is to make separate entries for each component of KOffice (and other "suites"). Each component is a big program and there's useful things to say about each.

A less useful alternative would be to add KOffice to each of the categories such as Category/Business/spreadsheet... This would be less useful, but it's easy to do, so it could be a good temporary measure.

Then, to fix the problem of Calligra being absent, I'd think about renaming the KOffice page(s) to Calligra. At a glance, it seems that Calligra has been accepted as the replacement to KOffice, so KOffice is only of historical interest. Even's office page promotes the Calligra programs (Words, Sheets, Stage...) instead of the KOffice ones: [1] A note at the top of the Calligra pages would suffice: ("Formerly KSheets, part of KOffice").

Sorry I can't roll up my sleeves and do this myself. I'm not familiar with the policies and information-organisation here. Ciaran (talk) 06:17, 7 July 2014 (EDT)
