- I will not have any scheduled GPC meetings for the rest of January. These meetings will be replaced by the OWASP Initiatives Meetings.
- Keith suggested that we should try the initiatives meetings for the month of January, and then decide whether we wish to meet more regularly come February. I agree. This is the plan. Please make sure you join the Initiative Meetings for Projects related updates and news.
- Projects Handbook 2013- Please review when you get the opportunity, and provide feedback on the last draft. I plan to make this live with the Projects Page.
- Keith suggested we develop a project requirement that will identify a project's maturity level both visually and within their documentation.
- I tasked myself with developing a template, visual branding, and review criteria to meet this need as I feel it is a very important distinction to make between our projects.
