Web Testing Environment. Not sure if the actual Live CD will change its
name. I'll let Matt answer that one. Thanks Paulo!

David & Matt,


Thank you for getting back to me again and for your clarification. Could you
please let know what does 'WTE' stand for? Also, have you already decided
how the next Live CD will be named? If yes, could you please let me know
what your choice was so that I can prepare the Live CD 'Project Details' tab
to receive it?

The long text was very much appreciated. All very useful information. No
regrets necessary. I wasn't being sarcastic. :-) 

I think Matt wanted to leave the old project page up so that it could refer
to the new WTE site for a while just so people could get used to the change.
I'll copy Matt on this so he can chime in.

I regret the long text. Everything is understood now except the acronymous
WTE. Nevertheless, I will re-set the project tomorrow. 


Thank you for supporting the Live CD's improvement.

Thanks for the quick (and verbose) response. I may have failed to
communicate with clarity in my initial email. It's not really a new project,
just an "upgrade" of the OWASP LiveCD project. It has a new name and new
scope. I'm not actually the lead on it either. I just came on board this
week to help out with it. Matt Tesauro (the project lead) may have a roadmap
already in place for the OWASP LiveCD project, and perhaps it needs updated
for this change.

Hello David,


First of all, thank you for volunteering to lead an OWASP Project.  It is
with volunteers like yourself that OWASP continues to succeed in making
application security visible.

Second, regarding your new leadership of this project, I'd like to request
that you send a project roadmap - basically the high level details of where
you'd like to take the project.  The OWASP Global Projects Committee (GPC)
will look at the roadmap and provide feedback on your project:  suggesting
projects which are closely related, resources and contacts which may assist
your efforts and any other suggestions to increase your project's success.


To get your project started, here are a couple of references for your

 - The Guidelines for OWASP Projects provide a quick overview of items key
to a projects success -

 - OWASP's Assessment Criteria is the metric by which projects are
evaluated.  There are three categories for projects: Alpha, Beta, and Stable
(former Release).  The Assessment Criteria allows project leaders to know
what aspects of projects OWASP values -


 - OWASP's GPC blog - http://globalprojectscommittee.wordpress.com/,

Your project will have an OWASP wiki page to inform and promote your project
to the OWASP community.  To setup your project's page, please provide the
details below so that the GPC can establish your initial project page.  The
details provided will be used to complete OWASP's project template.  Feel
free to add any additional information to wiki page or request assistance
about how to add to your projects wiki page.

Details to create your project page:
(0) Project Name,

(1) Project purpose / overview,
(2) Project Roadmap (as mentioned above),
(3) Project links (if any) to external sites,
(4) Project License
(5) Project Leader name, 

(6) Project Leader email address,
(7) Project Leader wiki account - the username (you'll need this to edit the
wiki - http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Tutorial),
(8) Project Contributor(s) (if any) - name email and wiki account (if any),

As your project reaches a point that you'd like OWASP to assist in its
promotion, the GPC will need the following to help spread the word about
your project:

 * Conference style presentation describing the project in at least 3 slides

 * Project Flyer/Pamphlet (PDF file) -

As work on your project progresses and you are ready to create a release,
please let the GPC know of the change in status.  The GPC can work with you
to get your project assessed and moved up the OWASP quality ladder from
Alpha to Beta to Stable.  Every release does not require an assessment -
feel free to email the GPC if you are unsure about your project's
requirements.  For examples of projects at various quality levels, please
see the OWASP Project page -

That is all for now - I wish you and your project great success.  Thank you
for supporting OWASP's mission.

Should you have any questions or require any further information, please do
not hesitate to contact me. 

Many thanks, best regards,



- Paulo

Subject: New OWASP WTE



I'm working now with Matt Tesauro on the OWASP WTE project. Could we set up
a new project page for the OWASP WTE? The OWASP Live CD probably needs to
stay for now so it can be updated to reference the OWASP WTE, but since the
WTE encompasses more than just the Live CD (VMWare/Virtual Box and other
install types) we probably need to broaden our scope. If you could create
that, I could start updating it with current project information.
