More Funding Potential

  2. The ESAPI proposal is done: Thank you Jim Manico and Kevin Wall for finalising the technical questions.
  3. Submission was held up due to some budget questions raised by Kevin and Chris.
  4. We re-evaluated the budget and made some changes.
  5. I've already submitted the proposal this afternoon. Deborah, the DHS representative, has confirmed.
  6. This is for $25,000 from the DHS.
  7. The Google Grant process is a little trickier than expected
  8. Nevertheless, I am moving forward with the application with help from a Google for Non-Profits representative.
  9. I hope to complete the application by next week, if all goes well.
  10. I've already started the process for the OWASP ModSecurity Proposal as well.

Primary Outcomes and Decisions

  1. Samantha: Continue to attempt to contact the SourceForge account people, and attempt to schedule a meeting with them.
  2. There has been no communication back from SourceForge people. We have decided to close the account so they will not continue to charge us. Samantha will move forward with this plan.
  3. Samantha: Develop a communications piece letting the community know why the account with SourceForge was closed.
  4. Samantha: Send Kate the file for the OWASP Initiatives Technical banner.
  5. Samantha: Finish Project Processes document and send to GPC for review.
  6. GPC: Look through Project Processes Document and note down any critiques, objections, suggestions, etc
  7. Nishi Announcement: Working on putting together the presentations and video for each speaker at AppSec 2012. Nishi will send us a link once work is completed.
  8. Samantha: Move forward with ModSecurity Project Grant Proposal and Google Grants Application Process.
  9. Kate: Will be in touch with Nishi regarding OWASP India initiatives.
