(Just fyi: this proposal was discussed by the OWASP board a few
weeks ago, and if you like the idea, we like to invite everyone to
vote with your feet and join the mailing-list to hopefully make this
a successful new way for the OWASP community to communicate within
our community, allow new contributors to join and include everyone
active in our community to join discussions about important OWASP
community topics. )<br>

<p>To open global OWASP discussions to the global community, beyond
Over the last months and years, we noticed that we had a number of
discussions on the "leaders-list" that should in fact have been
open to many more of our members and active contributor as well.
Like proposing new ideas for projects and initiatives or e.g. the
discussion about RSA and the OWASP security statement.
Note: The leaders-list will remain very important and essential
for all project and chapter leadership questions.
I just like to enable normal OWASP members and contributors to
exchange ideas and cooperate across chapter boundaries as well.
For example it would be nice if OWASP members could coordinate
worldwide across chapters to start projects and initiatives or
spontaneously join together for a new OWASP initiative. Some of
these discussions currently happen informally somewhere in the
hallway of a conference, or are done on the leaders list and then
sometimes communicated into the local chapters - or not. Which
IMHO leaves out the many OWASP members and active contributors,
who might be interested in joining interesting new projects or
starting new initiatives or voicing their opinion about what OWASP
should do in global questions, but who can not participate in the
discussion directly because they are not chapter leaders or
<h2> <span> <small>Name:
<p>topics in-scope of this mailing-list are new project and
initiative ideas that are looking for other fellow contributors
and volunteers and news that are relevant and valuable for the
global OWASP community. Explicitly out of scope is everything that
can be discussed in a specific project or chapter or group of
chapters, and topics that are already covered by the scope of any
other mailing-list like the governance and project lists.
And as this is a global mailing-list with potentially a lot of
subscribers, we ask members to be very cautious and conservative
in posting there and follow the scope definition very carefully.
Furthermore, please refrain from cross-posting to this
mailing-list. And be considerate whether you really need to reply
to the whole list of thousands of people if e.g. you just want to
sign up to a new initiative. A direct reply to the person who sent
the initial message can spare others a lot of email traffic.
<h2> <span> <small>Target
<p>all OWASP leaders, active contributors and those who are
interested in joining a project or initiative and don't know yet
which one, OWASP members, and everyone interested in the global
<h2> <span> <small>Sign-up:</small></span></h2>
<p>The list is free for anyone to subscribe / unsubscribe.
<p><b><a rel="nofollow" href="https://lists.owasp.org/mailman/listinfo/owasp-community" target="_blank">Please
<p>At the start, I suggest that the list should be pre-filled with
all members of the leaders-list and all OWASP members (as per the
membership list) with the option to unsubscribe like from any
other free mailing-list.
Going forward I propose to add a flag at the membership renewal
form (i.e. when you pay your membership fee) that you want to be
on the global "OWASP-community" mailing-list (with the default
setting to be "yes").
And I would appreciate if we could send an email to all chapter
mailing-lists to inform people there about this new global OWASP
community mailing-list which is open to everyone.<br>
All the best, <br>
OWASP Global Board Member<br>
