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

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
