Like the Google Summer of Code, I thought of organizing a Blender  
Summer of Docs... sponsored work for volunteers to complete a certain  
documentation task (can be video tuts too).

Blender Foundation can make budget available, like 500 euro per  
project, for 10 grants.

My question;

- is this a good idea?
- if so, then how to organize it precisely?
- who would be willing to coordinate it all?

I'm swamped in work, so would really need a couple of people to do it.  

It can really in the style of GSoC, so:
- we post list of possible ideas
- people submit project ideas
- a small group of mentors picks the grants

There was also the idea that people can submit in local language, and  
that translators could be used... these can also be part of the grants.
