Fwd: [Announce] Call for Proposals for Doc Sprint Summit v2.0

If you've been a Google Summer of Code mentor this year or last year, you will have already seen this. I wanted
to make sure everybody is aware, and this may provide the opportunity for the kind of concerted effort that
could finally get a BioPerl, Biopython, Bioruby, or Biojava (or a combined??) off the ground.

Dear GSoC mentors and org admins, 

Google Summer of Code in collaboration with Aspiration and FLOSS Manuals is hosting a "Doc Sprint Camp" at
Google's Mountain View headquarters (California) Dec 3 - 7, 2012.

The 2012 Doc Camp will feature:

1) An unconference on free software documentation topics - facilitated by Aspiration

2) 2-5 Book Sprints to produce books on free softwares - facilitated by FLOSS Manuals

Building on the success of the 2011 GSoC Doc Camp we are proud to bring you the 2012 GSoC Doc Camp. Like the
previous event the 2012 GSoC Doc Camp is a place for free software communities to meet, create 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.

Individuals and projects can apply. Food and accommodation for all individuals will be provided and
travel support (full or partial) can also be applied for.

Be a part of this exciting event – propose a Book Sprint on your favorite free software or come and help
others write a book on their favorite project. Guaranteed to be a lot of fun, productive, and a fantastic
place to advance your documentation efforts and experiences.

For more information or to register to take part, please see

Please note proposals are due by October 26, so get yours in ASAP!

Carol Smith, Allen Gunn, Adam Hyde
