I anticipate having the official proceedings (including artifacts, timeline, minutes, budget, lessons learned, etc) together by June 30th in accordance with our projected timeline for 2011. I am excited that our successful working session can provide the framework and precedent for other similar working sessions for the other committees.

At a high level, we posted a public RFP and personally reached out to 5 potential service providers (Google, SourceForge, CollabNet, LaunchPad and our own internal OWASP contractor team of Larry/Chris). We received 3 responses (SourceForge, CollabNet, and OWASP - Google declined the request stating that they are not planning on supporting any more hosted Google Code solutions for at least another year; LaunchPad did not respond at all). Of these proposals, the SourceForge proposal was the most detailed and well thought out response, covers the most feature requirements listed in our RFP, *and* was the cheapest of the three proposals.

The intention was to present this decision to the Board at the June 6th Board meeting which has been twice postponed to June 20th. I am currently on vacation and will not be able to attend the Board meeting next week - but I will make sure a member of the GPC attends to answer any questions.

However, it is still within our overall budget picture, and seeing as how the project hosting infrastructure is integral to our strategy to organize and manage projects effectively, we are willing to shuffle around other proposed GPC initiatives to compensate if an expanded budget cannot be approved.
