I think we need to put some limits on the amount of $ provided to any
individual, so this benefit gets spread out and isn't simply the slush fund
for favorite speakers.


Also, I do agree with Jeff that I think this money would be better spent
professionalizing OWASP's projects and portal, but some level of funding for
this is probably OK. Not sure about $50K / year though.

Any final comments on this?

The OotM (OWASP on the Move) is starting to gain some momentum :).

So to simplify the workload I propose the following rules:

1) the max budget per month is 4000 USD 
2) Sebastien will manage this (with my help if required) 
3) Once a month Sebastien will send to Dave a list of payments to be made
together with all required information and paperwork
4) I will be the main point of contact for OonT for Sebastien and will help
him where necessary 

What do you think?

If you are OK with it, Sebastien can start working on the first batch.

to protect the page.

Can you also indicate who (from the OWASP board) authorized the previous
events? Preferably excluding you (you got paid) or Dave (who did the


Once you authorized the payments, I (or the OotM project leader) can forward
the payment request(s) to Dave.


I still expect the amount from Mark. as soon as I have that I'll create a
separate mail.
