We’re pleased to announce that the Qubes OS Project will be participating in both Google Summer of Code and Google Season of Docs for 2020!

For Google Summer of Code this year, William Huang will be working on Template Manager and Package Handling Improvements under the mentorship of Qubes project lead Marek Marczykowski-Górecki. Specifically, William will be “designing a better mechanism for handling template installation and creating a user-facing application to deal with such mechanism and other template-related configuration, consolidating the management of templates.” For more information about Google Summer of Code in relation to the Qubes OS project, please see our information page.

Meanwhile, with Google Season of Docs, we’re still in the technical writer exploration phase, in which “interested technical writers discuss project ideas with mentoring organizations.” If you’re interested in participating in Google Season of Docs with Qubes, the technical writer application period begins on June 9, 2020 at 18:00 UTC, and the deadline is July 9, 2020 at 18:00 UTC.
