This is my first time asking to encumber funds so excuse me if I'm asking
in the wrong way.

If this requires voting, please consider this a request to vote on the

*Request:*  $15,000 USD

*Source:*  2016 Funds for The Website Reboot (TWR) [1]

*Justification:* Encumber a seed budget to begin work on TWR during the
close of FY 2016.

Initially, funds will be used to hire a contractor to setup a new cloud
server/VM at Rackspace which will become the production instance of the
OWASP wiki running the latest version of MediaWiki (1.27.x) and the
VisualEditor (GUI for editing wiki pages).  Deliverable will be deploy
artifacts (e.g. Ansible) to install and configure the wiki web and DB
servers for future or sandbox deploys.  This initial use is NOT expected to
uses the full sum of encumbered funds.  Spending of these funds will be
restricted to activities to further TWR.

*Next steps:*

   - Board approval to use these funds and/or confirmation of their
   - Recruit and hire contractor
   - Create and test deploy artifacts for the OWASP wiki in Github
   - Deploy new instance of OWASP wiki via deploy artifacts
   - Migrate DNS from old wiki instance to new instance
   - Celebrate

Let me know if you need anything further for me to begin on the non-board
next steps.
