[OCC] Proposal of a new OWASP Supporter Type - Government Supporter

I have the following questions regarding the Government:

1. If US Government types participate. Are they "open" to sharing some of their security practices such that the community benefits, or will they behave "closed"

2. Are we supportive of all types of "government" participation? Would we say no if the CISO of Iran, Libya, etc wanted to participate or would we too welcome them with open arms

3. How can we ensure that the increased government participation will be beneficial to the OWASP community at large? Will this invite suboptimal government behavior where the FBI will start profiling who attends meetings?
