> Hi,
> We have started to announce this everywhere and here is a good place too

> Short story: http://www.gnome.org/projects/wsop/
> Longer story: The GNOME Foundation is using the money coming from Google
> through the SoC projects to sponsor three women during two months. This
> will work like Google's SoC except that it's two months and it's only
> for women. The goal is to get more women involved in our community in
> the long term, since there are really too few women right now. And we
> don't want to have women doing the things nobody want to do, but we want
> them to work on the same stuff as we're all already working on. You can
> see some FAQ and more informations on

> We can't just sit and wait, wishing that more women would contribute to
> free software: action is required, to try to get a decent numbers of
> female contributors. We encourage everyone to do similar programs (and
> we can try to help organizations wanting to do so).
