 > Q2. Do you have any reservations about a OWASP call for comment from 
the community for additional ideas, suggestions or proposals on this 

+1 Yea the more smart eyeballs on this the better. The board is 
comprised of elected show ponies who won popularity contests, the 
leaders list has a greater net intelligence. Can we push this out to 
leaders and see if anyone has the desire (and proper resume) to help 
lead this?

My take is, this is serious open source funding. We could hire someone 
to lead this project (hire tech resources, get deliverables done). It 
will help seriously boost a few OWASP projects. I realize this is DHS 
and that might be a sour to some of our community. But so long as 
everything we do is open source, I'm pretty flexible about who funds it.
