Hi Alison (board see below the result of the latest meeting of the team that
is currently focused on organizing the next OWASP Summit)

When are you going to have ready the current financial state of OWASP and
how we are for the 2010 budget.

We need to commit ASAP (after a vote of course) a budget for the Summit (my
proposal is 50K) and we need to have visibility into our accounts in order
to be able to do make that decision.

Notes from todays call :

Present - Martin, John, Lorna, Justin

1) Dagstuhl has replied and are not available. They could be a good venue
for future, more. Sebastien (France) is looking for a venue close to Paris.
Proposed US site is very small.

2) Summit wiki page is up (John).

3) To follow up with Dinis on whether this was presented to the board or not

4) Should we have the browser day attached to another event? AppSec Europe
or AppSec US?

5) Things we need to sort out

a) board commitment
b) agreement on the dates
c) do we want to co-locate?

6) Without knowing where we are with board support, we're in a holding
pattern. If we can, perhaps we can coopt the Connection Committee call next
Tuesday otherwise in two weeks. Justin to follow up with Dinis regarding
status with the board

7) Please contribute to the Summit wiki pages!

8) John and Justin to see whether there is interest at the major browsers in
a browser security day. Also, consider how we pitch it to them - "how do we
go about securing HTML5 and CSS3" - OWASP as a neutral party or host

Next meeting: currently booked in at 1 September, 8pm UTC (do we want to
move this?) - 4pm EST, 9pm BST, 10pm CEST
