    • ESAPI Proposal: Deb, our DHS representative, has let me know that this proposal is still under review.

    • ModSecurity Proposal: Ryan and I are working together to develop the first draft of the proposal.
  • Salesforce Metadata Migration
    • The Salesforce metadata migration is now complete.
    • All project data is up-to-date based on the GPCs project inventory spreadsheet.
    • I am currently working with Kate to develop a form in Salesforce that will help us ask active project leaders to update their information directly through the form.
  • Project Processes & Lifecycle Development
    • Process form development: Completed via Salesforce forms.
    • Project Stage Benefits: Proposal completed and in the process of being discussed.
    • Project Graduation Process: Proposal completed and in the process of being reviewed.
    • Project Graduation Criteria: Still in development.
    • Project Migration Process: Still in development.
  • SourceForge Update
    • Audrey from Geeknet has responded to our proposal.
    • The Geeknet team has decided not to accept any of our options, see below:
    • Option 1: OWASP would like to propose that Geeknet waive either all or a percentage of the invoice fee, and redistribute the funds as a donation to the OWASP Foundation.
    • Option 2: OWASP would like to propose a 1 year corporate membership, and a 6 month online rotating banner advertisement in exchange for $10,000 being deduction from the Invoice in question. Total value: $17,500 in OWASP Services.
    • However, they did deduct $2500 from the original invoice: Update Geeknet Invoice.
    • We have agreed to accept this new proposal, and we are currently processing their payment.
  • AppSec APAC 2013: Planning
    • OSS & OPT forms are up.
    • I developed banners for each event: Projects Page.
    • I launched individual communication pieces this morning announcing the "call for entries": LinkedIn, Blog, Twitter.
    • I am attending the conference to help coordinate the event, and I am leading the Chapter Leader Workshop with the help of a translator.

Important GPC Meeting Outcomes and Discussion Points

  1. GPC Meeting: November 16 2012 Project Manager Report
  2. GPC Meeting: November 30 2012 Project Manager Report
  3. GPC Meeting: December 07 2012 Project Manager Report
  4. The ModSecurity proposal grant writing is in progress.
  5. SourceForge: They have responded. They decided to decline both options proposed by OWASP, but they have deducted $2500 from the original bill. We are currently processing the new invoice.
  6. AppSec APAC 2013: Call for Entries for the Open Source Showcase & OWASP Projects Track were launched again. Justin, Sam ,and possibly Nishi and Keith will attend.
  7. Part-Time Project Support Volunteer Role for Guidebook Projects: The final applicant count was 14 volunteers. I am currently processing the applications, and I will allocate roles come next week.
  8. FOSDEM: The application for a stand was submitted this week. If we get the stand, Seba and Martin K. will manage it for OWASP.
  9. Nishi: Will touch base with Matt Tesauro regarding the wiki file size requirement.
  10. Question for Justin: Have you spoken to James Greenberg from AppSec Labs? Have they come to a decision regarding their license choice, and whether they are choosing to continue as an OWASP Project?
  11. Question: Do we have criteria that measures whether a project is active or not?: Answer: The OpsTeam is working on creating an e-mail through Salesforce that will ask all current 'Active' project leaders to give us a status update. Additionally, it will give them an opportunity to update their information.
  12. Active Project Criteria: We discussed the idea of requiring project leaders to send us an update every six months, or annually. The aim is to make sure a project is still active.
  13. Project Update required information would be something along the lines of: Update the wiki with links and announcements, a summary of what you have accomplished, and a summary of your future plans.
