    • Active Projects: 113

    • OWASP Periodic Table

Currently Working On

  • AppSec USA
    • Spent last week in Austin, Texas at AppSec USA: From Monday through Sunday.
    • Took care of the logistics for the OSS presenters: Set up their booths, printed and designed their signs, set up monitors and power cords, arranged for them to have food, water, notepads, etc.
    • Hoping to bring OSS to all four OWASP Global Conferences in 2013 on a larger scale.
    • Attended in-person board meeting.
    • I was one of the conference photographers.
    • Attended chapter leader workshop: Hoping to do something similar for Project Leaders.
    • Attended 5 Hour in-person staff meeting.
    • Had dinner with Nishi and Keith: Thank you, guys.
    • Volunteered to bartend, and won 2nd place in the armadillo races. :)
    • Misc. logistics support for the conference.
  • Salesforce Metadata Migration
    • All project data is now in Salesforce.
    • I continue to work with Kate to finish the migration.
    • We are currently working on creating a template e-mail to send to all active project leaders asking them to update their information.
  • Project Promotion Events
    • Simon Bennetts and Jim Manico have registered to give talks at FOSDEM.
    • FOSDEM: Free and Open Source Developers' European Meeting.
    • Date: February 2nd -3rd.
    • If their applications are successful, they will have a great opportunity to promote their projects.
    • Simon is promoting ZAP.
    • Jim will be promoting OWASP Projects in general, and using several Reboot 2012 projects as examples of success stories.
    • Main track speakers get costs covered.
  • Projects Handbook
    • I have made more edits to the new Handbook.
    • I have added an Appendix.
    • The Project Donation agreement is finalised.
    • Flagship Projects: I think I should keep a section in here that describes what flagship projects are, but note that this designation is given by The Foundation? Thoughts?
    • Project Release Review Criteria: I need a bit of help to come up with the technical qualifying criteria for each project category for their reviews.
    • Let's discuss this today, and I can explain the reasoning behind my idea.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
    • This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
    • AppSec USA 2012 queries
    • Travel queries
    • Budget based questions
    • Funding questions
    • Project based administrative help
    • Project status information
    • Several project donations questions
    • OWASP LinkedIn Updates

More Funding Potential

  2. The ESAPI proposal is done: Thank you Jim Manico and Kevin Wall for finalising the technical questions.
  3. I am submitting this proposal come Monday.
  4. This is for $25,000 from the DHS.
  5. I have begun the application for our Google Grant.
  6. If we are successful with the Google Grant, we will be awarded $10,000 a month for use in a Google Adwords Campaign.
  7. We potentially have another project for 2013 that we may get a much larger grant for from the DHS. (Yet to be determined)
  8. DHS wants further involvement with OWASP with funding. (I have contacted Kevin Greene from DHS to set up a meeting. I am waiting to hear back).
  9. Thank you Matt Tesauro for putting Kevin and I together.

Primary Outcomes and Decisions

  1. Jason: Find the final version of the contract with SourceForge, and send to all GPC members.
  2. Jason: Locate the e-mail exchange between SourceForge and GPC that includes their inability to meet our project feedback standards.
  3. Samantha: Touch base with the SourceForge account people, and attempt to schedule a meeting with them next week.
  4. We have decided to end the contract with SourceForge after we sort out the invoice next week.
  5. Develop a communications piece letting the community know why the account with SourceForge was closed.
  6. Samantha: Send Kate a list of accounts created under OWASP's name in the Google Grants website.
  7. Samantha: Send an updated list of the Project Lifecycle process stages to GPC.
  8. GPC: Look through new Projects Handbook, and note down any questions, concerns or objections before our next meeting.
  9. Goal: Get the handbook and project processes finished by the 1st of January.
