Initially the ASF as an organisation was planning to apply as a
mentoring organisation for Google Season of Docs on behalf of all Apache
projects but if accepted the maximum number of technical writers we
could allocated is two. Two technical writers would probably not be
enough to cover the potential demand from all our projects interested in
We've received feedback from Google that individual projects can apply.
I will withdraw the ASF application so that any Apache project
interested can apply individually for Season of Docs and so have the
potential of being allocated a technical writer.
Applications for Season of Docs is open now and closes on 23^rd April
2019. If your project would like to apply then please see the following
Good luck everyone!
