Project Division Updates

  • Pending Project Confirmations
    • Forensic Guide: Waiting to hear back from the Project Leader.
    • Xelenium: Waiting to hear back from the Project Leader.
    • Intelligent Security: Waiting to hear back from the Project Leader.
  • Pending Project Donations
  • Inquiries to the Committee
    • What is the project donation process? Keith can you elaborate on it?
    • I have a volunteer wanting to take over a project that is inactive. We cannot get hold of the previous PL? What is the process to change leaders, if any?


Currently Working On

  • Projects Communications Restructuring
    • I have begun to create a the wiki template for the new OWASP Projects page.
    • I am having a bit of trouble with the tabs, but I am getting help from volunteers on how to do this.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
  • AppSec USA OSS
    • We rolled out the marketing for this recently, and we have received 6 entries.
    • As of today, all 6 entries have been accepted.
    • I am drafting acceptance letters with information on what comes next for the attendees.These will be sent out next week. We are now sorting logistics and travel for the accepted project leaders.
    • There is the question of travel aid for some of the project leaders. I suggest we set aside $3,000 for those PLs that ask for financial assistance to get to AppSec USA.
  • DHS Host Project Funding Proposal
    • Andrew, Matteo, Eoin and I met to speak about this in more depth. Deborah, the home office representative, had some concerns about PM software and travel expenses in the budget.
    • She would like to know if we are able to re-allocate the PM software and travel expenses to the OWASP portion of the budget. This meeting clarified many of the questions I had about Deborah's concerns.
    • The PM software is available open source and we have applied for a license already, and the travel expenses can now come from the OWASP section of the budget.
    • Kate, Deborah and I participated in an interview where we discussed her concerns. See above. The interview went very well, and we are currently waiting to hear back from her.
    • Meeting Outcome: She was going to send us specific instructions on what she needed from us regarding the budget, and she is going to send us an updated proposal form so we can start applying for 2 other OWASP projects she expressed an interest in.
  • Atlassian Open Source License
    • Andrew and I worked together on this application.
    • The Atlassian representative has gotten back to us and the company has decided that a community license would suit this project better. We are in the process of writing an application for the new license recommendation.
