This backlog seems to me to be very detrimental to the purpose of the directory. The directory should be _the_ definitive and go-to source for finding free software applications.I agree. I recently became an admin and started reviewing entries.I'm going to make an effort to remove the backlog. 379 right now,lets see what it's at next time this week. I'm about to put a few hourson it.Well, we are down to 338 now. So I approved 41. I found about8 pages which I created a talk page describing licensing issuespreventing it's approval and contacted the devs.After doing all that, I don't feel as bad about the unapproved pages,a lot of them are a bit obscure, and generally bare bones entries.I scanned the list for software I'd heard about and approved a fewof those.I will keep working on it and review them all.In the end, there is going to be 50 or more with talk pages andlicensing issues waiting to be resolved, so we are going toneed a new list of unapproved pages without a talk page.In case any admin wants to help, my strategy for approving is to find &download the source code, check the license (especially,check for gpl "or later" in the headers), look over the entryand any links, approve it.There are some which are just redirects, so I edit aurl like thisthen approve that page.
