[Owasp-board] Salesforce access

I, for one, definitely don't want access. When I was working on it in
Montevideo, I realized there was a treasure trove of contact information in
Salesforce (which is great for the foundation) but I didn't want to be open
to any kind of a complaints about me harvesting info out of Salesforce for
my employer aka Rackspace.  I figured giving the employees access keeps a
nice clear line between a ton of contacts/marketing data and someone who's
not 100% OWASP (aka me).  I told Sarah and Kate that if they had technical
issues, they can add me in to address those then take me back out when
whatever is fixed.

@ the CRM project - I kinda figured that was either done or handed over to
the employees.  Kate, Sarah, Samantha and Kelly seem to be using Salesforce
in ever increasing amounts so I'm not sure a project is really needed if
the employees are running things now.  Its awesome that you did that to
begin with as it was desperately needed but now that the foundation has
more employees and they are using Saleforce more and more, I'm not sure its
really needed.

Also, though there is something to "everything is a project", I'm not sure
that having projects that are strictly for OWASP internal consumption
really helps our external audience.  For someone who's not up on day to day
OWASP stuff, that project would seem odd.  I recall that Dinis was a
proponent of everything is a project but I never thought it helped
non-community members much at all.

Matt's 2 cents.
