It's great to hear that your project will be open! OWASP does not currently
have guidelines regarding how project source code is made available, only
that the source code is available somehow.

We are currently looking at providing a centralized project hosting
repository for OWASP in the future, but it will be some time before it is
ready for general use.

We're looking forward to the future of your project!
