UNESCO[edit]

I work for the FSF, and specifically on the Free Software Directory, so I am not going to edit this article. But, I wanted to make a comment that I find the statement "From the other side, as of 2011, FSF directory is directly linked from UNESCO website", to be misleading. The term "From the other side," shouldn't be applied in this context. Not only is the statement unrelated to the preceding text and discussion, but, even if it were somehow a rational counter/follow-up, it would seem reasonable to add that the Free Software Directory prominently states, "The Free Software Directory is a project of the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)". --Joshuagay (talk) 21:39, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Category list outdated[edit]

My suggestion is to delete the category list and provide only a link to the category overview on FSD: http://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Category/All. Jesus Presley (talk) 07:22, 28 November 2012 (UTC)
