It certainly looks like a Novell todo list to me:

Both of the documentation bounties are for more Evolution documentation.
While they're both good ideas, they certainly aren't at the top of my
priority list.

If Novell wants to offer up money to write documentation, that's their
decision.  But it should be clear that they're Novell bounties, and not
set by the GNOME Documentation Project.  The GDP is being seriously
misrepresented here.
