Currently Working On
- Projects at AppSec APAC 2013: Jeju, South Korea
- Sarah and I have been working together to develop the Projects Module for our Global AppSec Conferences.

- The Call for Entries forms have been developed and launched this week.
- Blog Announcement
- Open Source Showcase Announcement
- OWASP Project Track Announcement
- We are in the process of getting the forms translated into Korean.
- Project Support Volunteer Role Development
- Samantha put together a role description for a part-time project support volunteer.
- This role was developed to help the 3 Guidebook projects with project support duties.
- Please see the Volunteer Job Description Document for more details.
- We are looking for 3 separate volunteers that will be responsible for the same role.
- Each volunteer will be responsible for project support duties for one project.
- SourceForge Update
- Jason, Kate and Samantha attended a meeting with the Geeknet team.
- We let them know that we will be ending our contract.
- We discussed the possibility of proposing alternative payment options with them.
- They agreed to review our proposal.
- Jason, Kate, and Samantha agreed on two alternative payment options.
- Samantha drafted a response to the Geeknet Team, outlining our options.
- Option 1: OWASP would like to propose that Geeknet waive either all or a percentage of the invoice fee, and redistribute the funds as a donation to the OWASP Foundation.
- Option 2: OWASP would like to propose a 1 year corporate membership, and a 6 month online rotating banner advertisement in exchange for $10,000 being deduction from the Invoice in question. Total value: $17,500 in OWASP Services.
