Any interest? Proposals are due by October 26. More info:

"This is a call for proposals for the 2012 GSoC Doc Camp. Individuals
and projects are invited to submit proposals for the GSoC Doc Camp to
be held at Google's Mountain View headquarters (California) 3 December
- 7 December.

The Doc Camp will consist of 2 major components - an unconference and
2-4 short (3 day) Book Sprints to produce books for the selected

The GSoC Doc Camp is a place for free software communities to meet,
work on creating 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.

Free software projects of any sort can also apply - they do not need to
be GSoC 2012 projects although these may be given preference.

Projects will be chosen from proposals submitted to the GSoC Doc Camp
before October 26. Project applications can nominate up to 5
individuals to attend and participate in the proposed sprint. A Project
proposal does not have to nominate individuals to participate - you can
also use this as an opportunity to promote your project to Doc Camp
participants and extend your documentation community. If the proposal
is accepted the accommodation and food costs will be covered by the Doc
Camp for any listed individuals and part or complete travel costs for
each can be applied for (if applicable)."
