Currently Working On

  • SourceForge Update
    • Audrey from Geeknet has responded to me.
    • 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 take this deduction, and are currently processing their payment.
  • OWASP Licenses Update
    • I drafted the e-mail Justin asked me to put together regarding the three projects with non open source licenses.
    • I have sent it to all GPC members.

    • Lets discuss how we want to handle this.

More Funding Potential

  1. Guidebooks Grant Payment: Deb has delivered the correct form, and we are in the process of putting it together for her.
  2. ESAPI Grant Proposal: Still waiting to hear back from Deb.
  3. Google Grants Application is complete and Submitted.
  4. We are set to hear back from the Google Grants team by the beginning of 2013.
  5. We have now begun the process of grant writing for the ModSecurity Project.
  6. Ryan and I are still developing the project plan.
  7. This will be for a $30,000 grant proposal for the DHS.


  1. Samantha Groves
  2. Nishi Kumar
  3. Keith Turpin
  4. Kate Hartmann


  1. ModSecurity Proposal grant writing is in progress.
  2. 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.
  3. AppSec APAC 2013: Call for Entries for the Open Source Showcase & OWASP Projects Track will be launched again. Justin, Sam and possibly Nishi and Keith will attend.
  4. Part-Time Project Support Volunteer Role for Guidebook Projects: Final applicant count was 14. I am currently processing the applications, and 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: 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, summary of what you have accomplished, summary of your future plans.
