- This is the final draft of the letter: Letter.
- Dr. Gottlieb has responded with a change in license. I have made the necessary changes on our records.

- AppSec APAC 2013: Planning
- I have now closed down the 'Call for Entries' for the Open Source Showcase.
- We received no applicants for the OSS.
- The Project Track has 4 interested applicants.
- We are in the process of sorting out logistics for these potential speakers.
- CTF at our Global AppSec Conferences
- I spoke with Steven van der Baan about developing a CTF event module for OWASP AppSec Conferences.
- We agreed that South Korea would have to pass for this year, but that we should aim for having CTF at AppSec USA, Europe, and Latin America.
- Steven can get time off for USA and Europe.
- Steven will need funding for hotel and travel expenses. (I will check with the foundation to see if we can do this).
- The CTF module is scalable and Steven agreed to help us teach other volunteers how to run the event if he can't make it.
- There is a possibility we can combine the University Challenge module with CTF. I will touch base with Martin after the holidays to see if this is possible.
- Next Steps: We will begin developing a way to teach back up volunteers how to run CTF Steven's absence.
- New Project Web Page
- The new Project Page design is now complete.
- Please review the page, and note down any comments, changes, etc.
- I plan to make this live towards the beginning of January.
- Assessment Criteria, Lifecycle, and Graduation Processes

- Please review when you get the opportunity, and provide feedback.
- If there is no feedback, I will assume that the proposal has no objections.

More Funding Potential

- This will be for a $30,000 grant proposal.
- Meeting is cancelled today as most of us are already on holiday.
