Before adding a new entry to the Free Software Directory (FSD), please make sure that entry does not already exist by first using the Search box.

Programs added to the FSD must be useful free software and it must run on a completely free OS such as GNU/Linux. If the software runs on non-free operating system, then it must work as well or better on the completely free operating system as it does on the other operating systems.

To add a new entry, please enter the name of the program below. Please note that after submitting a new entry, your page will not be public until it has been reviewed and approved and published by administrators. However, you can continue to make edits to the page with your new entry on it after you submit it and before it has been approved for publication -- just click the edit button on the page after it is created.

The text you use here will be the end of the URL for that project page, so make sure that the text is typeable ASCII (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 and spaces), has no awkward symbols, ideally no accents, and uses the spacing and capitalization that the project uses. The idea is that people should be able to type it easily, regardless of language. Also, the shorter name is best, when multiple are available.
