Project Division Updates

  • Project Numbers
    • Active Projects: 116
    • Archived Projects: 41
    • Merged Projects: 43

Currently Working On

  • Salesforce Metadata Migration
    • Kate and I continue to work together to complete this project.
    • We are still working on creating a template e-mail to send to all active project leaders asking them to update their information. (Still seeking help for this)
    • Developed 8 forms to help with future requests.
    • We have now developed the forms in Salesforce.
    • Currently, I am in the process of finalising the forms.
  • Project Support Volunteer Role Development
    • Samantha put together a role description for a part-time project support volunteer.
    • This role was developed to help the 3 Guidebook projects with project support duties.
    • Please see the Volunteer Job Description Document for more details.
    • We are looking for 3 separate volunteers that will be responsible for the same role.
    • Each volunteer will be responsible for project support duties for one project.
  • SourceForge Update
    • Jason, Kate and Samantha attended a meeting with the Geeknet team.
    • We let them know that we will be ending our contract.
    • We discussed the possibility of proposing alternative payment options with them.
    • They agreed to review our proposal.
    • Jason, Kate, and Samantha agreed on two alternative payment options.
    • Samantha drafted a response to the Geeknet Team, outlining our options.
    • 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.
  • Project Processes Development
    • Putting the handbook aside until these are fleshed out and agreed to.
    • I feel it is a much better idea to tackle individually, and them add them to the handbook.
    • Process form development: 1st Draft Complete, Please Review.
    • Project Stage Benefits: 1st Draft Complete, Please Review.
    • Project Graduation Process: Proposal Still Under Development.
    • Project Graduation Criteria: Proposal Still Under Development.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests

    • Travel availability
    • Project based administrative help
    • Project status information
    • Several project donations questions
