+We are happy to announce that for the fourth time GNU Guix offers a
+[three-month internship through Outreachy](https://www.outreachy.org),
+the inclusion program for groups traditionally underrepresented in free 
software
+and tech. We currently propose [three 
subjects](https://www.outreachy.org/apply/project-selection/#gnu-guix) to work 
on:
+
+1. Create [Netlink](https://linux.die.net/man/7/netlink) bindings in Guile.
+2. Improve internationalization support for the [Guix Data 
Service](http://data.guix.gnu.org).
+3. Integration of desktop environments into GNU Guix.
+
+The initial application deadline is on Feb. 25, 2020 at 4PM UTC.
+
+The final project list is announced on Feb. 25, 2020.
+
+For further information, check out the
+[timeline](https://www.outreachy.org/apply/project-selection),
+[information about the application
+process](https://www.outreachy.org/apply), and the [eligibility
+rules](https://www.outreachy.org/apply/eligibility).
+
+If you’d like to 
[contribute](https://guix.gnu.org/manual/en/html_node/Contributing.html)
+to computing freedom, Scheme, functional programming, or operating system
+development, now is a good time to join us. Let’s get in touch on
+[the mailing lists and on the `#guix` channel on the Freenode IRC
+network](https://guix.gnu.org/contact/), or come chat with us [at
+FOSDEM](https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2020/meet-guix-at-fosdem-2020/)!
+
+Should you have any questions regarding the internship, please feel free to 
join the Outreachy Twitter
+Chat on Feb. 11, 2020, at 4PM UTC. Look for the hashtag: #OutreachyChat
+
+Last year we had the pleasure to welcome Laura Lazzati as an Outreachy intern 
working on [documentation video 
creation](https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2019/documentation-video-creation/), which 
led to the videos you can now see on the home page.

+#### About GNU Guix
+
+[GNU Guix](https://guix.gnu.org) is a transactional package
+manager and an advanced distribution of the GNU system that [respects
+user
+freedom](https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.html).
+Guix can be used on top of any system running the kernel Linux, or it
+can be used as a standalone operating system distribution for i686,
+x86_64, ARMv7, and AArch64 machines.
+
+In addition to standard package management features, Guix supports
+transactional upgrades and roll-backs, unprivileged package management,
+per-user profiles, and garbage collection.  When used as a standalone
+GNU/Linux distribution, Guix offers a declarative, stateless approach to
+operating system configuration management.  Guix is highly customizable
+and hackable through [Guile](https://www.gnu.org/software/guile)
+programming interfaces and extensions to the
+[Scheme](http://schemers.org) language.
