The backups are in the form of database base dumps and directory backups on
a nightly basis. I keep about a month of history. Directory backups are
available in 2 onsite and 1 offsite locations. Database dumps are also

The fact that Larry (I'm assuming that is you) still does critical functions
for OWASP like backups, is another reason we need to sort out his situation
and pay him accordingly. Jeff and Dave this is really on your side since
Larry is an Aspect employee and there is a lot of Fog here. Can you clarify
what is the current commercial relationship with Larry? i.e. who is getting
paid what? (ideally the answer should be a link to a page on the owasp.org
