    • The first meeting consisted of an orientation presentation, and a question and answer session.
    • During the second meeting, we discussed our thoughts on the current Projects Infrastructure, as well as the processes and procedures that are in place to operationally manage OWASP Projects.
    • Many different observations were brought forward and discussed among the team.
    • Next step 1: Advisors to review current project inventory.
    • Next step 2: Advisors to develop a list of successful/Flagship project's Best Practices, and be ready to share and discuss the list on our next meeting.
