OWASP Project Manager Report

Work accomplished since July 30, 2012

DHS Funding Proposal
  • The DHS Host Project Funding proposal has been submitted. We are waiting to hear back from DHS regarding possible interviews of our Host Project Team Leaders. We are in the process of scheduling a meeting with all involved to speak about this proposal and the interviews in more depth. Thank you to Kate Hartmann and Eoin Keary for all of their hard work on this proposal. We hope to hear from Deb sometime this week. The proposal is for $25,000 USD.
Projects Set Up

Other Issues
  • Updated Creating Project wiki page, studied Project handbook and Project Assessment Criteria
  • Had a very successful on-boarding process. I was very quickly set up with all the necessary accounts, and went through training with Kate Hartmann on the project management work flow for OWASP project set-ups.
  • Naming issue: If a project applicant refuses to give me his/her real name, should I set up the project any way? Would this violate the OWASP Core Value of Transparency?
