Where's the Summer of Documentation?

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has been running its Summer of Code 
| program since 2005. It has reached out to 
| hundreds of open source programs and 
| distributed millions of dollars to try to 
| encourage more people to get involved with 
| open source. That's great, but it doesn't 
| address the pressing need that many projects 
| have to develop more docs to go with the 
| software they already have. Now Fedora is 
| ramping up a "Summer of Coding for 2010, and 
| yet again â it's all about code doesn't 
| address any other forms of contribution.
