[Owasp-board] In case you missed it...

The term "leader" needs to be clarrified. Does that mean on the leaders
list? Project creator? Project contributor? Is an intern that does research
or creates a new project (and gets paid) a leader?

I think this lack of clarity around the term is making the discussion more
confusing too.
