Actual software listings are what this category is about. However, your site does not have to be limited to this scope in its entirety if the directory section is big enough and high quality.Directories of open-source and/or free software.
Open source�-�Any software whose code is available for users to look at and modify freely. Linux is the best-known example; others include Apache, the dominant software for servers that dish out corporate web pages. [taken from a Google search for "open source"]Web sites and Newswires that provide open source news which is in some way unique. Sites that just display a collection of news feeds from other sites and don't offer any unique content of their own will not be included.
Category is for web sites and newswires that provide open source news which is in some way unique. Sites that just display a collection of news feeds from other sites and don''t offer any unique content of their own will not be included.
Please note that this does not include sites which carry uncopyrightable material, such as recipes, or content which has fallen into the public domain.There is currently no description created for this category.
Hosting services for open-source projects. This category focuses on open source project hosting only - commercial hosting services will not be listed - wrong submissions will cause a delay in getting your site listed.
This category is only for sites that specialize in hosting open-source projects. This category is not for general web-hosting services.
Even if you are a commercial host that happens to use open-source operating systems and web servers as part of your infrastructure, you don''t belong here. Repeat: Commercial web hosting providers are not listed here. Sites for web-hosting companies should instead be suggested to the appropriate sub-category of Computers: Internet: Web Design and Development: Hosting.
Inappropriate site suggestions made to this category may be deleted without review. At the very least, suggesting sites to the wrong category will delay their review and potential listing by editors.
Please indicate (in round brackets) the programming language, and [in square brackets] the operating system that the code is known to work on.This category is used mainly to collect links to other relevant categories in Computers/Software and places like that. Individual packages usually fit better in one of the Software categories than here. (The exception would be software for "doing things the open source way", whatever that might mean in practice. And even then maybe not.)
