The maintenance would be manageable.  As long as no one sees any conflict
with the Openness of OWASP in having a "members only" partition.  The idea
of having a "members only" partition to the wiki was voted down as being too

Subject: OWASP on Linkedin - Subgroup "Official OWASP Member"

It's only been a few hours and I've already received a request to join the
"OWASP Official Member" subgroup.

The request included the member's name and membership number.

Seems like there is some interest here. Before I accept it (and commit to
this idea), what are people's thoughts?

Membership committee - Do you like this idea?
Board - Just a heads up
Kate & Kelly - This would require someone to manage the inbound requests to
verify membership and also a monthly purge of expired members.  I'm guessing
not too much work and potentially a good perk for membership. Thoughts?
