OWASP Global Projects Report

Currently Working On

  • OWASP Project Leaders: Brand Usage Guidelines
    • I have begun developing brand usage guidelines for our project leaders with Jim Manico's help.
    • We have decided to use the Apache Software Foundation's documentation on the subject as a guide for our own.
    • We feel they developed excellent material, and we plan to use their guidelines as a starting point.
    • I spent this week putting together our OWASP Project Leader Brand Usage Guidelines.
    • I plan to propose this to the community and the Board come next week.
    • OWASP Project Leader Brand Usage Guidelines.
  • Project Leader Responsibilities & Expectations
    • I have finished putting together documentation that outlines a project leader's responsibilities, and our foundation's expectations of them.
    • This document was written to help project leaders understand their responsibilities as managers of their project(s).
    • The first draft is now complete: Project Leader Responsibilities
    • I plan to propose this to the community and the Board come next week.
  • Project Wiki Templates
    • I am working towards developing new wiki templates for our OWASP Projects.
    • Leaders have expressed frustrations with our current templates as they are not very user friendly.
    • Our PLs also need to let our consumers know at which stage a project is in within our OWASP Projects Infrastructure.
    • Development is ongoing.
  • Project Leader Cheat Sheet
    • I am currently developing a "How to run a successful OWASP Project" document.
    • I hope this document will help project leaders understand how to best leverage the OWASP Project Infrastructure for success.
    • This is an ongoing project.
    • I will have a first draft of this completed by the end of next week.
  • Sales Force for Projects
    • Kate and I have been working together on Sales Force for Projects.
    • Currently, we have all of the existing project metadata updated into our Sales Force system.
    • We are exploring options for PLs to update their project information without my assistance.
    • We are also exploring options that will help PLs use Sales Force for project management, budget tracking, and resource tracking.
    • We came to the conclusion that Sales Force Portals are the best option.
    • Kate is looking into logistics for Portals.
  • Daily Project based queries and requests
    • This has not changed much since I began the post: questions are very similar in nature.
    • Global AppSec questions.
    • Funding queries.
    • Travel availability.
    • Project based administrative help.
    • Project status information.
    • Several project donations questions.
    • OWASP LinkedIn Updates.
    • What's happening with projects, questions.
