    • Currently preparing for AppSec APAC.
    • OSS and OWASP Projects Track preparations are currently taking place.
  • 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.

    • If their applications are successful, they will have a great opportunity to promote their projects.

  • 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.

    • Project status information

More Funding Potential

  1. OWASP ESAPI FUNDING PROPOSAL
  2. The ESAPI proposal is done: Thank you Jim Manico and Kevin Wall for finalising the technical questions.
  3. I am submitting this proposal come Monday.
  4. This is for $25,000 from the DHS.
  5. I have begun the application for our Google Grant.
  6. If we are successful with the Google Grant, we will be awarded $10,000 a month for use in a Google Adwords Campaign.
  7. We potentially have another project for 2013 that we may get a much larger grant for from the DHS. (Yet to be determined)
  8. 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).
  9. Thank you Matt Tesauro for putting Kevin and I together.
