What GNOME's Women Outreach Program Is Paying For This Summer

The GNOME Outreach Program for Women recently came under fire after finding out it was a big contributor to the GNOME Foundation running short on money, due to administering the program, fronting the associated costs, etc. We've already covered the 2014 Google Summer of Code projects so in this article we're taking a look at what the new GNOME women developers are getting done the next few months.

In terms of the latest round of projects for the GNOME Outreach Program for Women, the projects are listed via the Wiki, and they cover the accepted GNOME tasks that run from May to August. The three projects (at least for what's been documented) include:

Documentation for GNOME applications and desktop help - "GNOME documentation team's mission is to provide the GNOME community with high quality documentation, including online help, tutorials, application manuals, and user interface guidelines. I'll be documenting Gedit for the release 3.14 and gnome-games like gnome-klotski, tali, gnome-chess, swell-foop."

Translation and review of GNOME project files in Greek - "GNOME has maybe the best translation in Greek of all other GUIs. My task is to finish the translation and review of the strings for possible grammatical or other mistakes. Also I'll test all known (to me) translation programs and describe my opinion about them. "

Adding calendar support into Getting Things GNOME! - "Getting Things GNOME! is a personal tasks and TODO-list items organizer, but it currently does not support a calendar view. The goal of this project is to build a plugin for GTG that displays all of the tasks that have time associated with them in calendar views (day and week), and to allow users to create and edit tasks in these views. Such views would make it easier to visualize one's task schedule, and to make time-related modifications to current tasks."

These female contributors are paid $5500 USD by the end of their summer period in August. Those wishing to find out about what other female contributors are doing this summer for other non-GNOME projects that's still organized via the GNOME Outreach Program for Women, there's more documentation via the GNOME.org Wiki.
