Jump to: navigation, search
  • Finish up the discussion of the GPTC Agenda 20 Jan 2009.
  • From the referred previous agenda, two main questions should have the Committee's attention:
  1. Can a set of criterion be established to define OWASP priorities in terms of projects available to be sponsored by our OWASP Members?
  2. We need to set up as as possible a new season of code. How will it be done? FYI - Current SoC's status.

Proposed deliverables for meeting:

  • Complete 'report for OWASP board' list (see below)
  • new projects approval process
