Hello Committee,


I’ve spent the last couple of days trying to figure out the proper answer to
your statement and, even if I´ve thought in several ways of writing it down,
I’ve eventually found myself feeling that the right answer hasn’t come up.
Answering to such a generous and supportive comment is definitely not a
simple task. However, I simply would like to let you know that your words
have indeed meant a great deal to me. In fact, my work experience with the
OWASP community has been tremendously challenging and rewarding as it has
been both an opportunity to learn and a reason of pride.  Of course it also
has helped me with my bills J. I sincerely thank you.  I will continue to do
my best to deserve your trust.




Paulo Coimbra,

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

Subject: [Owasp-leaders] Season of Quality - status update


At the OWASP Summit, a discussion of a Season of Quality occurred.  I
suggested we call it a "Spring of Quality"


In our opinion, Paulo Coimbra is the Season of Quality.


Here's why:

* Paulo has driven quality requirements for the Summer of Code (SoC)

2008 from its start.

* He has tracked the 34 SoC projects, made sure that the review process was
completed and ensured that each project met its quality requirement.

* All new projects are required to meet certain guidelines, establish
reviewers and be assessed based on the assessment criteria (alpha, beta,
release).  Thus all new projects understand from inception that quality

* He has been fundamental in the Global Projects Committee work generally
and especially for the next season of code.


Individually, you may have sent several emails to Paulo about a particular
project.  However, multiply that by the number of OWASP projects and you
begin to see how much Paulo has on his plate.  I've got approx. 344 emails
since mid-December just for the Global Projects Committee from Paulo.


All that said, we wanted to make sure that the quiet, behind the scenes work
that Paulo does to ensure quality in OWASP projects gets acknowledged



Sent and approved by the following Global Project Committee members

- Matt Tesauro (author)

- Jason Li

- Pravir Chandra

- Leo Cavallari


Note:  Dinis Cruz was not consulted on this since he also sits on the OWASP
Board.  I'm sure he would agree with the above.  The fact is that the
non-board members of the committee wanted to make this statement since we
work so closely with Paulo.
