    <br>
    What boundaries? Why can't we find a (paid) technical leader to
    drive this and then just do it? What part of our bylaws prevents
    this? I am not trying to put extra work on you Sarah, I'm suggesting
    that the board hire someone technical to lead this project and help
    drive the deliverables.<br>

              +1 Yea the more smart eyeballs on this the better. The

              popularity contests, the leaders list has a greater net

              <br>
              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. My 2 center<br>
