Important GPC Meeting Outcomes and Discussion Points

  1. GPC Meeting: November 16 2012 Project Manager Report
  2. GPC Meeting: November 30 2012 Project Manager Report
  3. GPC Meeting: December 07 2012 Project Manager Report
  4. 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.
  5. FOSDEM: The application for a stand was submitted this week. If we get the stand, Seba and Martin K. will manage it for OWASP.
  6. Nishi: Will touch base with Matt Tesauro regarding the wiki file size requirement.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
