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.

Did you find an error on one of the pages?

If you have, simply click the "Problem with this listing?" button in the bottom left corner of the project's page you are on. Or, if the page you are submitting a but for does not have a button on it, simply go to Bug report form, enter the page name, and then kindly file a bug report.

Did you discover nonfree software or nonfree documentation in the directory? Then please follow the instructions above, and be sure to click the box for the field that asks, "Are you reporting this project as being or containing nonfree software?"
