Trying to construct some ideas about the FSD

All entries where applicable should also have links to
This I do not specially to promote these sites. (Trisquel I would promote.)
There are many reasons like verify their authenticity have them maintained/developed and promote free software.
All software should have an (or more) independent developer/maintainer. So these sites should not be their main site if could.
This way you also notice problems like pressure to maintain needed software especially Debian. (At least thats my thought.)
-- Please let me know which sites to add (or remove) and other ways to promote specially GNU and High Priority. --

Usefull links found through the FSD

Usefull in the search of lost software
standard I search these:
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/
https://sourceforge.net/directory/
https://github.com/
https://archive.org/
other places:
https://launchpad.net/
https://gitorious.org/ (Download and search through (11mB): https://gitorious.org/index-list.html)
https://code.google.com/archive/p/
https://github.com/BackupTheBerlios (If found a link to berlios (also search sourceforge (not only -> https://sourceforge.net/u/berliosrobot/profile/))
Smaller software sites
http://www.ibiblio.org/catalog/
https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/
http://repo.or.cz/
http://www.sourcefiles.org/

Thoughts

I think we should always promote C (which I do not know how) and Guile.

GNU should force more control over what they want to call GNU software. (!!! For now I refuse to say GNU/foo !!!)

"Base URLs" for GNU software "Base Names":

http://gnu.org/software/foo
http://gnu.org/software/foo/manual
http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/foo
http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/foo
http://web.cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/foo (For the website other repositories should also have a base URL for this please seperate website and software.)
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/foo (Look at the crap it is now, some loose files and directories can go to a better place all the loose text (only pointers) files/dirs can go and all NON-GNU can also leave.)
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/foo (There has to be a better solution/name a seperate manuals section is not needed.)
ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/foo
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/foo
http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/foo
http://svn.savannah.gnu.org/viewvc/foo
http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/foo
http://arch.savannah.gnu.org/archives/foo
http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/lh/foo
http://bzr.savannah.gnu.org/r/foo
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/foo.git
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/foo.git
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=foo.git

Extra (try it):

http://tracker.debian.org/pkg/foo
gnu.org/software: There should not be a decommissioned section, GNU has to decide what it wants to list as GNU software.

Maillist messages about GNU software I wrote:

GNU Software not on FSD
"Official GNU software" in savannah
Wrong names for gnu items?

Every software entree in the FSD I treat as very important GNU software is even more important.

Only on ftp:

gnu
flex : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/flex
phantom : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/phantom
savannah: ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/savannah
alpha
alived : ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/alived
snprintfv: ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/snprintfv
oldgnu
calc : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/calc
clx : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/clx
finger : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/finger
g77 : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/g77

xmorph : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/xmorph
xshogi : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/xshogi
zlibc : ftp://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/zlibc
These "Base Names" from gnu/s/ wont work with "Base URLs" (inc. gna puszcza debian): 3dkit, dr.genius, ggv, gicqd, gnubios, gnucad, gnupedia, grover, leonardo, html-info, (mana (debian link exists))

What do you need to do before you be noticed?

Some time ago on the FSF IRC channel I asked to make someone an administrator (I mentioned early access with restricted approval rights but now full rights seems also ok) because the current administrators do not seem to review/check enough. This was the example I showed (the second revision (also the editor (someone) I meant) contains fatal mistakes but it was approved): http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Which . I would also like some sort of supervisor (a paid job I propose) who watch and advise unexperienced editors for example, I should also already have given the power to approve my own edits. I have edited 250 entries. At this point I will not do any edits anymore because I do not want my hard work also go to waste.

A mentioning of the discussion
