Submit new entries

To submit a new entry to the directory:

  1. Login to the directory
  2. Head to our submission page.
  3. Enter the name of the package or software program.
  4. You will be brought to a multi-part form -- don't panic! Only the first few fields are required.
  5. The final step is to go to the last tab and press the save button at the bottom.

After our team has reviewed your submission thoroughly, completed adding as much data as possible, and ensured it meets all of our guidelines, your submission will be published on the Directory.

Have you discovered a piece of proprietary software listed in the directory?

If so, please send an email with the subject "URGENT!" to .

Want to suggest an update to an entry?

If you've found some information that is out of date or just wrong on an entry, simply click the "submit a bug" button in the bottom left corner of the page, and please fill out any parts of the form that you can. We understand if this process may be cumbersome while we still work out all the kinks in our system, so you can feel free to email us with as much explanation as you can, including a link to the page you are referring to.

The easiest way to get involved right away is to join the Directory Discussion list. As the community begins to build more of the infrastructure and support documentation, that information will be discussed on the mailing list and eventually updated on this page.
