You have to be careful not to read the laws too literally. In France
there are a lot of laws, case-law and governments "decrets" concerning
non-profit work while being unemployed and receiving unemployment
benefits from the state, the more reasonable thing to do being to just
ask your unemployment agency. It's in most cases encouraged as
long as it does not prevent you to actively seek a job.
(Or you might just send your resume to the Ada Core Technologies
folks in Paris :).
