The document covers and is also applicable to employees and not only
'It is important for the OWASP Foundation board of directors and
*employees* to be aware that both real and apparent conflicts of interest
or dualities of interest sometimes occur in the course of conducting the
affairs of the Foundation and that the appearance of conflict can be
troublesome even if there is in fact no conflict whatsoever.'

>> 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.
