OWASP Project Manager Report

Work accomplished since June 6, 2011

OWASP Free Trainning Courses
New Projects Set Up
New Releases Set Up
Assessed Releases
Projects Mailing List
  • Jason Li populated the owasp-projects mailing list with all known projects leaders so the Projects Committee could easily send announcements regarding OWASP chapter news. I have supported this activity by gathering all email addresses and filling in projects inventory spreadsheet. By GPC decision, the list is [email protected] and it is announce-only by the GPC committee members (similar to how OWASP-all is announce-only by Board/staff members) and should be reserved for project announcements only.
Routine Tasks
  • My daily routine always includes answering a relatively wide range of questions regularly posed by OWASP members and mainly by OWASP Projects leaders. The variety of matters that I currently deal with can be checked in my email tool and the tree of folders built to store, follow up and organize them as follows 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. I would like to note that to perform this task, and all the others projects' related ones, I have always had relevant support and guidance from the OWASP Global Projects Committee.

Proposal of future activity

  • To continue answering all received projects' related questions.
  • To continue setting up new projects and new releases as requested.
  • To continue spreading the GPC templates through all OWASP projects.
  • To implement all GPC requests and concretely to support its plans to:
    • Carry out the Project Hosting initiative as a tool to provide a centralized repository for OWASP;
    • Build a new OWASP Projects Portal;
    • Design the second leg of the assessment criteria 2.0, i.e., its Project Health component.
  • As soon as the above referred assessment's second leg is designed and approved, to begin a process to evaluate as much Projects as possible.
  • To set up all the OWASP free training courses that may be requested by OWASP Chapters.
  • To continue working with Dinis Cruz, Carlos Serrão and Konstantinos Papapanagiotou to produce an initial/draft proposal of an OWASP Training Academy.
