SANS has offered to build an OWASP certification and give a percentage
of the proceeds to OWASP. They already have a GWEB certification that
could serve as a base for the program.

SANS has also offered to allow OWASP chapters to meet at it's
conferences around the world, lets folks attend OWASP meetings for free
(of course), serve drinks, and otherwise back off no-strings-attached.

SANS is of course a for-profit commercial enterprise.

Frank Kim, Denis Kirby and Jason Lam are the folks who run the SANS
AppSec program and made this offer to OWASP. They feel it's of value to
SANS just to have OWASP folks be aware that SANS exists, and they can
help the community at the same time.

I've known Frank and Jason for some thing and think they are good eggs.
Worth discussing...
