OWASP Academy Portal

The OWASP Academy Portal is to be the single access point to the categorized OWASP educational Material.

On the OWASP Academy Portal, all OWASP internal and donated training material can be accessed.
Those training material is reviewed and approved by the OWASP Academy Portal Project members
in order to set and maintain an OWASP-worthy training quality.
The Global Education Committee is guiding and enabling the efforts of the Academy Portal.

We affirmed that the Creative Commons license will be used for all content on the acadamies portal.

Ricardo pointed out that we need a formal definition of the academy, primarily to enable the best used of time resources.
As things are now, given a free hour to contribute to the project, most of that hour is spent trying to find the best direction to proceed. To that end, we discussed needing an environment for asynch conversation, and using google docs for shared document creation.

We had four participants in the conference call. Would another time work better for those who did not attend?
