I apologize, the attachment did not seem to reach everyone.  I have also
attached the original offer letter for Paulo.

have a couple of different issues to resolve.  


First of all, we have the immediate tasks:  Paulo has moved to Portugal.
This means we should modify his payments to comply with whatever changes are
necessary for his new country of residence.


Then, we need to decide if Paulo is a "contractor" as per the letter of
agreement or is an "employee" of OWASP.  This is a tough one.  The subject
has come up before and been dismissed (based on the attached letter) for a

OWASP is a US based organization, with no legal foothold in EU, the

of Paulo and his tax liability in Portugal.  To do this, I recommend we look
