  • Funds - Is membership model preventing Season of Code?
 Email Snippet:
   4. Are we planning any future seasons of code? It may just be me, but it
   seemed that the 08 SoC made lots of things happen for OWASP. Since then
   things have seemed a bit slow.
 The concept of Seasons of Code is currently on hold, due to:
 1) need to complete the reorganization and mapping of ALL OWASP project under the new 'Project Information' tab and 'Template Driven Wiki pages' (we need help)
 2) focus to move the (limited) OWASP financial resources from paying OWASP Leaders (which is a VERY complicated issue) to providing logistical & operational resources to those projects and leaders
 3) lack of funds (OWASP due to the recession, new membership model and some losses at OWASP Conferences; is still in a not very strong financial position)
