  1. Geeknet: Audrey from Geeknet has not gotten back to me. I reached out to her to make sure she has received payment. I will reach out to her again come next week.
  2. AppSec APAC Planning: We might have to do away with the OSS at AppSec APAC 2013. There have been no applicants for this event module. We are focusing on the Projects Track, and reaching out to speakers for this.
  3. Project Support Volunteer Role: I have selected the candidates for these roles. They have agreed, and I am meeting with them next week to discuss their roles.
  4. New Project Web Page: This is mostly complete. The only information that is missing is the Assessment Criteria Page information, and the Project Terminology Information. Please edit away.
  5. Assessment Criteria, Lifecycle, and Graduation Processes: Please have a look at the attached document and send feedback, suggestions, concerns, solutions, etc.
  6. Presentation Comments: Keith suggested we make a template for each lifecycle stage. This will ensure the reader is fully aware what stage the project is in within the OWASP Project Lifecycle. I agree, this is a great idea.
  7. We need to very clearly outline what level of usability a project will be expected to be in at each stage.
  8. Project Benefits Comments: It was suggested that we move the technical writing support and graphic design support benefits to the Labs stage as opposed to having this benefits for Incubator projects.
  9. Additional Incubator Benefit: Recognition and visibility of being associated with the OWASP Brand.
