GNOME is planning to participate in the 2021 Season of Docs.
If you have a project that needs documentation and has contributors who are able and willing to mentor, please add your proposal as a comment below.
When thinking about your project proposal please be aware that there have been changes to the Season of Docs program this year. Some of the main changes to note are:
- Open source organizations will be allowed to apply for a grant based on their documentation needs.
- If selected, open source organizations will use their grant to hire a technical writer directly to complete their documentation project.
- Organizations will have up to six months to complete their documentation project
For more details on the program please see the Season of Docs guide: https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs
What should your proposal look like?
All proposals should include a list of key needs, goals or problems, possible documentation solutions, and possible metrics.
Please review these examples to get an idea of what you need to provide in your proposal: https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/project-ideas
Our deadline for submitting final proposals to Google is March 26th.
We need your proposals as soon as possible in order to start publicizing and promoting the projects to get the attention of technical writers so we ask that all proposals are submitted as a comment below by March 1st.
