Sugar Labs appears to be eligible to part of the United Nations Online
Volunteering[1]. There is a pool of about 200,000 registered volunteers, I'm
not sure how many are software developers - most projects are vanity website
development. Sugar would be an interesting

This may be a good way to tap into a wide pool of volunteers, especially
from outside of USA/Europe, but would incur an administration penalty.
Perhaps a discussion to be had at SLOBs level, would there be support for
Sugar Labs to look into joining?

Organizations provide volunteer opportunities in the form of discrete
project briefs. I think this would be best suited to translation tasks, with
an brief per Activity.

Regards, Tim.
