I would definitely NOT ask Mike to continue. He has made it clear that he is
not interested. We need to figure out a way to continue on without him.

Vishal, Andrew et al,


I've consulted Owasp-guide Archives and it seems to me that even if Michael
Boberski isn't being pointed out as project leader on the Project Details
page, he has been acting at least as its project manager.






Being so, I propose we contact him to ask whether or not he still wants to
keep this pivotal position. 


Also, in the event of a negative answer from Mike, I propose we address both
this project mailing list and the leaders' one to announce the project is
seeking a new leader.


I've also tried to find the project's roadmap out and what I found seemed
not up-to-date.






Thus, I also propose that after having clarified the leadership question, we
trigger the efforts to write down an ambitious but feasible roadmap. 


Please drop me a line and let me know your thoughts. Please also let me know
if I should contact Mike or if any of you want to do so.


Many thanks,


Paulo Coimbra,

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

I'm sure Mike will be back soon. 


I used to lead the project, but I am not currently in a position to do that.
I could provide direction and peer review, but I'm no PM and have little
time due to personal reasons.

Hi Ken,

I have not been able to spend much time on the project lately, and will be
able to do so from next month. But I have not seen much activity from other
members as well and was thus wondering what is happening with the project at
the moment.

As you said, not heard back from Mike, so not sure which direction the
project is going. Do you or anyone else working on the project has any idea
who is going to lead and provide directions to the project.

Our other bet may be to get in touch with the projects committee and seek
advice from them.

I have cc'ed this e-mail to Paulo as well, in case he has any information on

Could someone please let me know how I could get involved in contributing to
the project? I wrote to Mike but I have not heard from him since.

It appears that little has happened recently on the project. On my last
contact with Mike, he said "My priorities have changed. Someone else
will be picking up the mantle at some point for this effort." We'll see.
I'm continuing to work on my pages. I just posted finished pages for the
 'Approach' page and 'Adding Security Controls Into Your Solution
Stack' and the first two sub-pages after it. Any comments would be
