This request can be rejected/closed. I will use <https://savannah.gnu.org/projects/directory> to host this software.

you said the tools are written from Nov 30th to Dec 1st. Dec 1st has passed, do you still need the repositories? Or are you happy with "directory" and I should close this submission?

hi Josh - there already is a savannah project for the FSD, namely "directory". https://savannah.gnu.org/projects/directory
It seems to me it would be considerably less confusing to use the "source code" repositories of that project instead of starting a new one?

I made you an admin there, in any case.

just a little checkback: Are you sure to call the repository "Free Software Directory"? That sounds like it contains the directory itself. It might be more sensible to add "Tools" to the name, to avoid confusion.
The repository will be approved immediately after reply.

A new project has been registered at Savannah

Registration Administration

While this item will be useful to track the registration process, approving or discarding the registration must be done using the specific Group Administration page, accessible only to site administrators, effectively logged as site administrators (superuser):

Registration Details

  • Name: Free Software Directory
  • System Name: fsd
  • Type: non-GNU software & documentation
  • License: GNU General Public License v3 or later


This project is for various tools that interact with and import data into the Free Software Directory.

Other Comments:

This project is being created to host tools for the Free Software Directory. The software will going to be written at an event (in which the FSF has been officially invited) in NYC from Nov 30th to Dec 1st 2012. There will be 8 software developers working for roughly 20 hours straight.
