OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • OWASP Project Leaders: Brand Usage Guidelines
    • I have begun developing brand usage guidelines for our project leaders with Jim Manico's help.
    • We have decided to use the Apache Software Foundation's documentation on the subject as a guide for our own.
    • We feel they developed excellent material, and we plan to use their guidelines as a starting point.
    • I have spent this week researching their materials, and outlining our usage requirements.
  • Project Leader Responsibilities & Expectations
    • I am currently working on putting together documentation that outlines a project leader's responsibilities, and our foundation's expectations of them.
    • I am also developing a "How to run a successful OWASP project" document.
    • An OWASP project lifecycle info graphic is being developed as well.
    • I hope that these "How To" documents and graphics will help project leaders understand their responsibilities, and how to leverage the OWASP project infrastructure for success.
    • This is an ongoing operations project.
    • I will have a first draft of these completed by the end of next week.
