I imagine the Global Education Committee has their own affairs to take
care of during their meetings.

I see that you are seeking the "endorsement" of the Global Education
Committee for an idea

As an organization that is driven by the contributions of volunteers,
the OWASP community has always rallied behind people that have
produced something of significant value to OWASP and to application
security. Rather than spend time trying to get endorsements and buy-in
from various parties, the best OWASP contributors simply get to work
on their ideas and go produce something.

If someone has an idea, they should flesh out the idea and produce a
concrete, usable deliverable. If that deliverable has demonstrable
value, the community will undoubtedly recognize the effort. But an
effort that provides no value will not be recognized by
the community, even if it has been heavily endorsed by various

The OWASP CBT *Project* is a project run by its project leader, not by
the Education Committee. If there is a perceived shortcoming in any project,
anyone is welcome to create their own updated content to submit to the
current project leader. Or they can even produce another project entirely
in the same space. In other words, rather than spending time and effort
trying to get the endorsement of a committee, they would simply create
their own training module and share it with the community.

As always, content at OWASP is available under an open source license,
so someone could even build off of existing materials to produce their
own updated module (with proper attribution) to share with the community.

Producing something of value is the best way to gain recognition and
support within the OWASP community.
