[Owasp-board] Conflict of Interest / OWASP

Matt T is not a covered person for that policy.

   - He is not a director of OWASP (at this time)
   - He is not an officer of OWASP with delegated board duties (i.e.
   Executive Director or CFO)
   - He does not hold a financial interest in OWASP (in fact, afaik, no one
   does at this time until we start using the line of credit and then its a
   bank we do business with)

Unless Matt T is asking OWASP to make a contract with a firm he owns, or
stands to benefit in some way from a contract being let by OWASP, I believe
that the policy does not apply to him.
