Anyone interested in the Google Doc Camp?

It would be a great opportunity for all those OWASP projects who lack or
want to create documentation (e.g. User manuals, technical specs, etc).

The deadline to apply is this Friday.

Ping me if interested.

Hi Everyone-

Sorry about the permission issues with the information page linked in the
original email. We are working on the problem now.  Below is all the
information you'll need to participate:


*Google Summer of Code Doc Camp - a partnership of GSoC, Aspiration and
FLOSS Manuals
This is a call for proposals for the 2013 GSoC Doc Camp. Individuals and
projects are invited to submit proposals for the GSoC Doc Camp to be held
at Google's Mountain View headquarters in California from October 14 -
October 18.
What is it?*

The GSoC Doc Camp is a place for free software communities to meet, work on
creating a book for their project, attract new people to their efforts, and
share their documentation experiences. The camp aims to improve free
documentation materials and skills in free software projects and
individuals and help form the identity of the emergent free documentation
sector.The Doc Camp will consist of 2 major components - an unconference
and 2-4 short (3 day) Book Sprints to produce books for the selected

The unconference will explore topics proposed by the participants. Any
topic on free documentation of free software can be proposed for discussion
during the event.

Each Book Sprint will bring together 4-5 individuals to produce a book on a
specific free software project. All participants of the Doc Camp must
attend a sprint. The books will be launched online in print and ebook
formats on the final day of the event.

*Who should come?*
Individuals and free software projects can apply. All individuals will be
required to work on one of the selected projects to assist their
documentation efforts.

*How to I get involved?*
Individuals with a passion for free documentation about free software may
apply to attend by filling out the application form [1] and submitting
before August 7. Those wishing to attend do not need to be from a GSoC
project. Accommodation and food will be covered by the GSoC Doc Camp.
Partial or complete travel costs can also be applied for as part of the
application process.

Free software projects of any sort can also apply - they do not need to be
GSoC 2013 projects although these may be given preference.

Projects will be chosen from proposals submitted to the GSoC Doc Camp
before August 7 through the application form [2]. Project applications can
nominate up to 5 individuals to attend and participate in the proposed
sprint. A Project proposal does not have to nominate individuals to
participate - you can also use this as an opportunity to promote your
project to Doc Camp participants and extend your documentation community.
If the proposal is accepted the accommodation and food costs will be
covered by the Doc Camp for any listed individuals and part or complete
travel costs for each can be applied for (if applicable).

The 2013 GSoC Doc Camp is co-organized by GSoC, Aspiration and FLOSS
Manuals. Unconference facilitation conducted by Allen Gunn, and Book Sprint
facilitated by Adam Hyde.
