Currently the Directory (or FSD for short, without G at the end) proudly states that all software listed there runs on GNU/Linux (), but propose that we lift this requirement. This would allow small projects such as Replicant to: * Start contributing to reviews of packages that are specific to their base kernel (Android, CyanogenMod or LineageOS as far as I can remember). * Take advantage of the review process and structure of the FSD (including some of the MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki features and current entry data organization). * Have even more visibility in the long run. I know this might be unrelated or could be done anyways but, to give an example, it would be possible for a Replicant contributor to schedule on their agenda to also do Replicant-specific reviews at the same time as the FSD Friday meetings and so focus only on two or three chat windows, and when someone comes asking for Android/mobile freedom-related topics the Replicant contributor will already be there to catch the opportunity. # References : https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Category/Runs-on/GNU/Linux .
