Project Division Updates
- Project Numbers
- Active Projects: 113
- Archived Projects: 41

- OWASP Periodic Table
Currently Working On
- AppSec USA
- Spent last week in Austin, Texas at AppSec USA: From Monday through Sunday.
- Took care of the logistics for the OSS presenters: Set up their booths, printed and designed their signs, set up monitors and power cords, arranged for them to have food, water, notepads, etc.
- Hoping to bring OSS to all four OWASP Global Conferences in 2013 on a larger scale.
- Attended in-person board meeting.
- I was one of the conference photographers.
- Attended chapter leader workshop: Hoping to do something similar for Project Leaders.
- Attended 5 Hour in-person staff meeting.
- Had dinner with Nishi and Keith: Thank you, guys.
- Volunteered to bartend, and won 2nd place in the armadillo races. :)
- Misc. logistics support for the conference.
- Salesforce Metadata Migration
- All project data is now in Salesforce.
- I continue to work with Kate to finish the migration.
- We are currently working on creating a template e-mail to send to all active project leaders asking them to update their information.
- Project Promotion Events
- Simon Bennetts and Jim Manico have registered to give talks at FOSDEM.
- FOSDEM: Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting.
- Date: February 2nd -3rd.
- If their applications are successful, they will have a great opportunity to promote their projects.
- Simon is promoting ZAP.
- Jim will be promoting OWASP Projects in general, and using several Reboot 2012 projects as examples of success stories.
- Main track speakers get costs covered.
- SourceForge Update
- The sales people finally got back to me.
- Evidently, we owe them $12,000.
- Here is the Invoice.
- Here is the letter regarding the recent purchase of the Media Division of Geeknet.
- We need to discuss what we are going to do with this.
- Moreover, we need to discuss how to close this account, and how we are going to migrate existing OWASP users to a different platform.
- Projects Handbook
- I have made more edits to the new Handbook.
- I have added an Appendix.
- The Project Donation agreement is finalised.
- Flagship Projects: I think I should keep a section in here that describes what flagship projects are, but note that this designation is given by The Foundation? Thoughts?
- Project Release Review Criteria: I need a bit of help to come up with the technical qualifying criteria for each project category for their reviews.
- Let's discuss this today, and I can explain the reasoning behind my idea.
- Daily Project based queries and requests
- This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
- AppSec USA 2012 queries
- Travel queries
- Budget based questions
- Funding questions
- Project based administrative help
- Project status information
- Several project donations questions
- OWASP LinkedIn Updates
More Funding Potential
- OWASP ESAPI FUNDING PROPOSAL
- The ESAPI proposal is done: Thank you Jim Manico and Kevin Wall for finalising the technical questions.
- I am submitting this proposal come Monday.
- This is for $25,000 from the DHS.
- I have begun the application for our Google Grant.
- If we are successful with the Google Grant, we will be awarded $10,000 a month for use in a Google Adwords Campaign.
- We potentially have another project for 2013 that we may get a much larger grant for from the DHS. (Yet to be determined)
- DHS wants further involvement with OWASP with funding. (I have contacted Kevin Greene from DHS to set up a meeting. I am waiting to hear back).
- Thank you Matt Tesauro for putting Kevin and I together.
- Samantha Groves
- Kate Hartmann
- Jason Li
- Nishi Kumar
- Keith Turpin
Primary Outcomes and Decisions
- Jason: Find the final version of the contract with SourceForge, and send to all GPC members.
- Jason: Locate the e-mail exchange between SourceForge and GPC that includes their inability to meet our project feedback standards.
- Samantha: Touch base with the SourceForge account people, and attempt to schedule a meeting with them next week.
- We have decided to end the contract with SourceForge after we sort out the invoice next week.
- Develop a communications piece letting the community know why the account with SourceForge was closed.
- Samantha: Send Kate a list of accounts created under OWASP's name in the Google Grants website.
- Samantha: Send an updated list of the Project Lifecycle process stages to GPC.
- GPC: Look through new Projects Handbook, and note down any questions, concerns or objections before our next meeting.
- Goal: Get the handbook and project processes finished by the 1st of January.
