Hi,

This is just to let you know that Google started accepting applications for
organisations that want to participate in "Google season of docs", offering
stipends to technical writers to work full time on improving documentation
of open source projects.

See also a list of sample ideas:
    https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/project-ideas
(but maybe some improvement of the writing tools could also count, I don't
know).

Participation is not limited to students this time.

Is any of the TeX user groups interested in participating?

Mojca

We’re delighted to announce the inaugural year of Season of Docs, a Google
program that fosters collaboration between open source projects and
technical writers. Season of Docs is similar to Summer of Code, but with a
focus on open source documentation and technical writers. Details are on
our website: g.co/seasonofdocs
<https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/>.

Would you like to take part as an open source mentor in the inaugural year
of Season of Docs? Open source organizations can start thinking now about
the projects you’d like a technical writer to work on. Take a look at
the examples
of project ideas
<https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/project-ideas>. Reach
out to your community members to see who’d like to be a mentor for Season
of Docs. As a mentor, you don’t need technical writing skills. Instead,
you're a member of the open source organization who knows the value of good
documentation and who is experienced in open source processes and tools.
See the guidelines on working with a technical writer
<https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/tech-writer-collaboration>.
Organization applications open on April 2, 2019. See the full timeline
<https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/timeline> on the Season
of Docs website.

>From April 30, Technical writers can explore the list of participating open
source organizations and their project ideas. Technical writers bring their
skills in designing and developing documentation to the open source
organization. Technical writer applications open on April 30. The list of
accepted technical writing projects is announced on July 30.

Please do tweet and blog about Season of Docs if you’d like to share the
news. We want as many people to know about it as possible. We’ve provided
logos that you can download and some example content on the press page
<https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/press>.

We’re looking forward to an exciting pilot of the Season of Docs program!

If you have any questions about the program, please email us at
season-of-docs-support at googlegroups.com.

Best regards

Sarah Maddox, Andrew Chen and the Season of Docs team
