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.
