Introduction

As part of its 2009 agenda, the Global Projects Committee is undertaking the task of improving the OWASP Project structure. This task includes determining orphaned projects, updating and augmenting the existing project criteria, and reclassifying projects to help users find OWASP Projects that are relevant and important to them.

To help us with this task, we have created a number of surveys that we have distributed to the OWASP Community. Each survey serves a different purpose as explained below. For any questions, please contact the Global Projects Committee.

OWASP Project Owner Spring 2009 Self Update

The project owner(s) for each OWASP Project (both tools and documents) are asked to complete a self update on the status of their project. This information will help the Global Projects Committee discover orphan projects, create processes to help mature existing projects, and to collect metadata about projects that will allow us to re-design the OWASP Project pages. This self-update can be found here.

OWASP Project Sponsorship Survey

The Global Projects Committee is currently exploring corporate sponsorship of individual OWASP Projects. Any project that indicates they would be interested in corporate sponsorship should fill out this survey in addition to the Self Update.

OWASP Project Feedback

The Global Projects Committee would also like to facilitate feedback to OWASP Projects from the OWASP Community. Our first attempt to do so is the Project Feedback form. If you are interested in providing feedback for a particular project, please use this form. Also, if you are a project owner, please feel free to distribute this form to your users and we will forward you the feedback from any surveys for your project. Please be constructive in your feedback and note that all feedback will be made public.

Results

The OWASP Project Owner Spring 2009 Self Update was closed on May 1st, 2009. Fifty-seven projects were updated by their owners (or a contributor/reviewer). The following is a summary of the results of the survey.

Adoption

The following projects had leaders that responded to the survey and explicitly stated that they are willing to cede control of the project to a new project owner. The GPC will evaluate whether the project should have a new "leader", a "maintainer", or the project should be archived.

  • CAL9000 - recommend that this should be given to a maintainer
  • Java Project - recommend that this should be given to a new leader
  • Sprajax - recommendation TBA
  • SqliBench - recommendation TBA
  • WebScarab - recommend that this should be given to a maintainer
  • Google Hacking - recommend that this should be archived. The search API used by the Google Hacking project is due to be deprecated and discontinued by Google in August 2009.

Orphaned Projects

The following projects are listed in the page but did not respond to the Self Update. As a result, these projects will be considered orphaned and inactive. The Global Projects Committee is working on determining whether a project is eligible for adoption or if the project should be archived.

Grants

The following projects were identified as an OWASP "project" but should be recategorized as an OWASP Grant under the new grant framework.
