Congratulations to everyone on the successful completion of the OWASP Global
Industry Committee project to review NIST Special Publication 800-37
Revision 1 Final Public Draft!  Thanks to your hard work we have submitted
73 comments to NIST and influenced this central FISMA document in ways that
will improve the protection of our nation's Federal information systems.

On Saturday I received an email from Ron Ross, head of FISMA efforts at
NIST.  His opinion on our comments submission?  "...they are extremely
impressive in the attention to detail and thoughtfulness" and "...it gives
us a strong infusion of private sector comments (always important to us)."
 So kudos to everyone!

He relates that the final release of SP 800-37 Rev. 1 is planned for
February, if all goes well.

On a personal note I would like to thank everyone for taking time out of
their busy schedules to contribute time to this effort.  This type of review
project is highly technical, fairly dry and very intellectually challenging
so few people in the world have the expertise to contribute fecund comments.
 It was an honor and a pleasure to work with a team of volunteers panelists
who could.
