Sorry Guys, I don't follow owasp email as closely when I have too many
things on my plate at work.

The twitter feed has a few requirements.

1.	I need the number like below. 
2.	The twitter link like below needs to be added to the page 
3.	The number needs to be added to a script I have running for it to
appear on the pages. White list.

I have added the one below to the page you reference.

Is there a white list for accepted twitter feeds?

for example both these examples below work:

I'm not sure about Larry's situation.  He has started to document all the
stuff he does, but isn't done yet I don't think.  I can talk with him about
For this particular situation, it's pretty easy.  D- for not figuring it
out.  Go to the Twitter page of the thing you want to include and find the
RSS link.  The number is in the link to the feed.

Hi, the email below is a good example of the smallish WIKI type requests
that Larry used to handle.

So my question is what is the current situation? Is Larry still involved,
have we found a replacement? who is currently responsible for this type of

Larry installed a plugin in the wiki that processed the twitter feed.  We
emailed him the account we wanted to monitor and he gave us the number for
our wiki page.

Just updated most download links on the main O2 webpage at the OWASP
Website: http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_O2_Platform and added a couple
new tabs

FYI, here is main O2 presentation that I gave at the OWASP AppSec DC last
week: "What is the OWASP O2 Platform
d-presentations/OWASP_O2_Platform_-_AppSec_Ireland_Sep_2009.pdf> "  (for
more details on O2 modules you can also see "OWASP O2 Platform Modules
d-presentations/O2%20Modules%20Presentation%20V1.0.pdf> "). This is the same
that I delivered at the Ireland & Brazil AppSec 

I also created a new Twitter account for O2 updates (see
https://twitter.com/O2Platform) and was trying to link it to the OWASP site
but I'm not 100% sure how that is it done. The
http://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_AppSec_DC_2009 guys use a
<twitter>34534108</twitter> MediaWiki tag which points to their account in
Twitter, but I couldn't figure out how to configure this number. 

Rex or Mark (CCed), can you share how you added a twitter feed to your
AppSec DC page.

After a bit of a fight with Blogger, I was able to improve the format of the
"O2/IBM Blog Series" I posted last week:

*	Part I - IBM Application Security related tools & "AppScan 2011"
*	Part II - Why IBM will 'solve the problem'
*	Part III - Why I said NO to IBM ... for now
*	Part IV - O2 needs to be Commercially Supported

And finally, during the flight back from DC, I  made some further changes to
the XRules manager module which soon should have native support for Unit
