Don't refer to it as a "volunteer activity". Call it "training" and
I.e. you're "tinkering with some code that is part of GNU/Linux"
(mention Linux as they're likely to have heard of that) for the purposes
"enhancing and practicing" your skills as well "participating in the
tecnhnical community" with the hope this this will improve your
"technical reputatation, name recognition, and set of contacts", all of
which should improve the chance of getting a job and off the dole.
Ah, yes, but not for long. Do realize that these people are trained to
detect fraud. They won't believe this "training" stuff for too long, if
results (i.e., employment) don't follow ...
