Hello all,

We are looking for volunteers to help with the Directory import project.
The project enables us to import package information from free software
repositories. Long ago a friend put together scripts that we used to
import thousands of entries. But thousands upon thousands more could be
added if we update the import scripts.

The project has been sitting idle for a while now at
<>, just waiting for volunteers to
jump in and refine it. The scripts are in Python, so if you're a
seasoned Python hacker this would be a great way to contribute.

While it will take quite a bit of work, the effort will have a truly
profound effect on the Directory. If we can get the project up and
running, it will greatly expand the number of entries and in the future
can help to keep them up to date.

If you are interested in lending a hand, please email
<address@hidden> with the subject "Directory Import Volunteer" and
tell us a bit about yourself. Thank you all for all the work you do on
the Directory, and let me know if you have any questions
