Hello everyone. I hope you are well. 

You can see here
<http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pAX6n7m2zaTWMKINCNKhkQw>  and here
<http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pAX6n7m2zaTWE689J8nz4EA>  two excel
files with a portrait of the OWASP Summer of Code 2008 situation. 

We thank those of you that are keeping the schedule and we ask the remaining
ones, the vast majority, to make an effort to make up for this delay. Please
let me remind you that we expect the final project deliveries ready by,
maximum, the first day of the OWASP Summit, namely November 4. 

I also inform that there will not be any other postponement in this season
of code.  Consequently, to be paid, the project must be completed and
reviewed by the referred date. Any hypothetical exceptions to this rule must
be authorized by OWASP Board. Hence, please allow me to repeat myself by
requesting a last effort to complete your project within the time frame as
it will mean both your much deserved payment and the success of our Summer
of Code. 

On another note, to those of you that will be presenting projects at OWASP
EU Summit 2008 <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_EU_Summit_2008> , I
ask to assist us with the marketing effort. We want to generate as much buzz
as possible about the event over this following week. Please help us by
making a note here
of who you are contacting and who you've contacted about your own sessions
and projects. Please try to get 2-3 other people to come along but, be
aware, that given budget limitations, those people must pay entirely for
their costs. We are counting on you to divulge as much as possible this
worldwide worth going event!

I take the opportunity to challenge you all to present an application to the
next season of code. Even though the schedule is not already stabilized, we
already know that the process of launching the Winter of Code 2009 will be
triggered at the Summit.  We are planning a Work
Session to do so and it configures the perfect opportunity to weigh up the
work that we have been doing and to shape our next program.  What's more,
your application, if totally ready, may be immediately approved!  

For now it's all except for a personal note. I am longing to personally meet
those of you that won't make our next gathering in Portugal and very
thrilled with the prospect of being acquainted with the larger part that
will be there - working with/for you has been a true pleasure. 

Many thanks, best regards, 

Paulo Coimbra,

OWASP Project Manager <https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Main_Page>
