Season of Docs is an online program conducted by Google Inc where open
source organizations can participate by submitting a proposal to improve their documentation*. Selected orgs will receive fund which in turn can be used to hire technical writers. Can we make use of this program.
From what I understand from their web page, Its nothing like google
summer of code as there will be nor any mentors neither any students. Org receives fund directly from Google Inc and org itself need to hire professional technical writers from outside to work on the documentation and progress reports have to be submitted to Google. And this has nothing to do with outreach team.
Most important part, deadline for submitting application is on March 25,
2022 at 18:00 UTC
*documentation - It can be of anything from writings docs to auditing, proof reading.

Thanks for reaching out to debian-doc. I agree Season of Docs migth be useful >for Debian. I think one of the first things we should organize in the 3 days >left, is:
- Have community members willing to help recruit, evaluate, and onboard a technical writer, and who would be available to answer questions and provide other support during the project (6-8 months, including the application period)?
- Have a community member willing to serve as the organization administrator and coordinate creating the application, responding to questions from the program administrators, and submitting monthly evaluations and the final evaluation and case study? The organization administrator should also be willing to answer followup surveys after the completion of the Season of Docs program.
(as I've found on >https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/admin-guide .) Are you aware >of any volunteers for this? Would you yourself be willing to do that work?
