- SourceForge Update
- Audrey from Geeknet has responded to our proposal.
- The Geeknet team has decided not to accept any of our options, see below:
- 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.
- However, they did deduct $2500 from the original invoice: Update Geeknet Invoice.
- We have agreed to accept this new proposal, and we are currently processing their payment.

Important GPC Meeting Outcomes and Discussion Points
- GPC Meeting: November 16 2012 Project Manager Report
- GPC Meeting: November 30 2012 Project Manager Report
- GPC Meeting: December 07 2012 Project Manager Report
- The ModSecurity proposal grant writing is in progress.
- SourceForge: They have responded. They decided to decline both options proposed by OWASP, but they have deducted $2500 from the original bill. We are currently processing the new invoice.
- AppSec APAC 2013: Call for Entries for the Open Source Showcase & OWASP Projects Track were launched again. Justin, Sam ,and possibly Nishi and Keith will attend.
- Part-Time Project Support Volunteer Role for Guidebook Projects: The final applicant count was 14 volunteers. I am currently processing the applications, and I will allocate roles come next week.
- FOSDEM: The application for a stand was submitted this week. If we get the stand, Seba and Martin K. will manage it for OWASP.
- Nishi: Will touch base with Matt Tesauro regarding the wiki file size requirement.
- Question for Justin: Have you spoken to James Greenberg from AppSec Labs? Have they come to a decision regarding their license choice, and whether they are choosing to continue as an OWASP Project?
- Question: Do we have criteria that measures whether a project is active or not?: Answer: The OpsTeam is working on creating an e-mail through Salesforce that will ask all current 'Active' project leaders to give us a status update. Additionally, it will give them an opportunity to update their information.
- Active Project Criteria: We discussed the idea of requiring project leaders to send us an update every six months, or annually. The aim is to make sure a project is still active.
- Project Update required information would be something along the lines of: Update the wiki with links and announcements, a summary of what you have accomplished, and a summary of your future plans.
