These look good - except for the mission change.

I'm like more community feedback on that first. I'm personally not a fan of
the new text, just my opinion.

Great part of the OWASP website is that it is a WIKI and anyone can change
it.. or change it back. As we kick off this new effort, I want to submit a
change request to our Executive Director for consideration and discussion
at the Board if you are not in agreement:

Website:  http://www.owasp.org

The graphic on the home-page of OWASP Foundation is technically incorrect
<global committees>

Since it is the home page I want to recommend the following changes before
doing it;

1) Remove graphic as it provides a vision with global committees, this has
been retired and is no longer accurate.

Replace that graphic with this video for (90) days it captures the spirit
perfectly imho and we should encourage more videos like this to provide
FRESH content in  rotation.


2)  Message:

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a
 worldwide not-for-profit charitable organization focused on improving the
security of software. Our mission is to make software security
 so that individuals and
 worldwide can make informed decisions about true software security risks.


Software powers the world, but insecure software threatens safety,
trust,and economic growth. The Open Web ApplicationSecurity Project (OWASP)
is dedicated to making application security visible by empowering
individuals and organizations to makeinformed decisions about true
application security risks.

supporters, and more than academic supporters.

our community to remain vendor neutral  with the collective wisdom of the
best individual minds lication security worldwide. This simple rule is the
key to our cess since 2001.
