Thank you for formalising your request.
#1: You want to have the process of your suspension and termination reviewed.
#2: the exclusion to OWASP event, in result of the suspension.
#2a: the exclusion was to end by january 2014
#2b: the exclusion has extended, as you have been refused to visit and speak at OWASP events
the outcome of the investigation should clarify if the exclusion of participation at OWASP events justified against OWASP policies.
Whereby the participation is in form as a public, non OWASP member. Exclusion of a public speaker at an public OWASP event.
As 'out of scope' you state:
#1: The possibilities of rejoining the OWASP community.
#2: The Google Hacking project inquiries.
Please let me know if the above is correct.
About the time line you suggest, I am not sure at this moment about the deadline for the CFP for the AppSec-Eu 2014.
As this is the first case and the history of this, I cannot promise any dead line.
Nevertheless, I will do my best for the means of quality and time for the investigation.

Subject: Re: Termination - Request for Artifact(s)
I would to formally request that you to undertake an independent
review of my suspension and termination from OWASP.
The focus and scope will be on the within the e-mail I recently sent
to this [governance] mailing list and I have highlighted the major
points within http://lists.owasp.org/pipermail/governance/2014-February/000326.html
(bolding may not render correctly as the e-mail was HTML).
I have no intention to rejoin OWASP until this matter is resolved but
I would like to participate as a member of the public and speak at
https://2014.appsec.eu/ and the OWASP Board have declared that in
light of the exclusion lapsing in January this will continue
indefinitely and therefore I am excluded from presenting at this
Therefore, I don't want this drag out like the Inquiry Google Hacking
Project which should have taken "a few hours work" at most.
Is this timeline reasonable to you?
The issue related to SourceForge vs GitHub is secondary and I have
tendered the evidence that infers that Aspect Security sought to offer
their commercial services to SourceForge during the tender issued by
the OWASP GPC.
