[gfsd]Re: freshmeat.gnu.org?

Hi,

I'm switching to address@hidden as Loic suggested
me.

And here is in brief my wish.
Freshmeat is cool, but belongs to VA Soft that is
becoming less and less free.
There are good free alternatives to sourceforge.net,
including savannah.
But as far as I know, there is nothing such freshmeat.net.
So if possible, I would like to contribute to making
something like freshmeat.net, but hosted somewhere really
free (like gnu.org, fsf.org and others).

I first asked on address@hidden and i was answered
that the Free Software Directory
(http://www.gnu.org/gnulist/production/index.html) is
already existing.
But that's rather GNU software directory, isn't it?
Moreover, what I like most on freshmeat.net (and
jesuislibre.org, but French only) is to have the list of
recent updates. And to have something like a record for
each piece of software including the homepage, the
download page, the version number, a screenshot if
possible, a cvsweb if possible...

Well, is there something already existing that could
become the free freshmeat? Or do we have to make it?
How can I contribute? Is there anybody interested too
that I should meet?
