Hi Alison,


I have been doing the OWASP event calendar for the last couple of

It makes sense that you also do this. I have added you as editor for the
Google calendar.

You should have received an invitation for this.

All changes in the Google OWASP calendar are directly reflected on the
home page. Currently you, Larry and I can do this.


Gents: if you want also want access: shout!


Only problem now is time zones in Google calendar: Google has changed
behaviour - it now displays per default in GMT (not in local time).

We have 2 options here:

Set everything in GMT as if GMT is the local time zone: a chapter
meeting at 6PM in EST would then be entered in 6PM GMT

Or calculate the delta's and set the events in the actual time zone.
This requires recalculating upon entering the event AND resetting the
current Google link on the Owasp Home page.


Both solutions are not 100% ok, but I would go for the second option. If
ok for you I will ask Larry to re-embed the Google Calendar as to
display it in the viewer time zone.

If this is confusing: check out
ff04de36b6 where I requested Google to add some functionality.

Subject: [Owasp-board] To Do List on Wiki


Hello everyone,


I met with Jeff yesterday to go over some OWASP stuff, and he suggested
I put together a To Do list on the wiki.  This way everybody can know
what I have been asked to do, and  can help me decide how to prioritize
certain items.


My page is: http://www.owasp.org/index.php/User:Alison_McNamee


I put a short introduction with contact info, ongoing job duties (things
I will do on a daily/weekly/monthly basis) and a To Do list.  As things
get completed on the To Do list, I will delete them off.


The only thing of note in the ongoing job duties section is the
newsletter.  I am working on putting together the 11th edition, which is
featuring the Australia 2008 Conference, and the AntiSamy project.  I am
still working on finding the recent updates to the wiki (Jeff and I went
over this yesterday), and OWASP in the media.  Dinis and Sebastian - I
had sent you an email with some questions concerning this a couple of
weeks ago.  Any input/suggestions you have on this would be very
helpful!  I hope to get this out within the next week or two.  While I
am still getting familiar with putting this together, it may not go out
every week.  But after I put together a couple of newsletters, I plan on
getting these posted on a weekly basis. 


For the To Do list, my current priorities are assisting Justin Derry
with the Australia 2008 conference (I have been ordering some supplies
for him, sending Invoices, paying bills, etc.), and getting together a
flyer for the BlackHat conference.....since those are time sensitive
items.  I have already put together a spreadsheet of all of the local
OWASP Chapters with the Chapter Leader, and sent out an email to all
leaders asking for contact info.  I have gotten a good amount of info
back, with some responses still trickling in.  I have also already
converted all of the presentations from the San Jose conference from ppt
to pdf, and am just waiting to hear back from Larry on the best way to
send those to Dinis.


Right now, the workload I have is enough to keep me busy for my 40 hours
a week.  However, as I become more familiar with everything (and don't
have to spend so much time trying to find an answer to one question), I
will definitely be able to take on more things.  So please feel free to
give me items to work on, and just let me know how high of a priority it
is.  Also, please keep in mind that the Application Security industry is
completely new to me, so what seems like a simple request to you, may
require some instruction for me.  


Also, did anyone notice the email from James McGovern about adding
something to the OWASP Event Calendar?  I am assuming this is something
that I can take care of for him, but am not sure where to go on the wiki
to add this.  Please advise....



Thank you!
