Hey,

I'm Ian Soutar, student at the University of Abertay Dundee in Dundee, 
Scotland and have submitted a brief proposal for the Hackademic 
Challenges Project. Primarily the focus is to produce new challenges 
however I feel this can't be done without fixing the current issues with 
the existing ones and bringing them up to the same level of standard.

A little about me, I've disclosed security vulnerabilities to large 
companies - you can see me in the Google Security Hall of Fame - and 
have created Capture the Flag challenges previously. I'm a long-standing 
Committee member of the Ethical Hacking Society at my University and 
helped put together the Capture The Flag segment at our security 
conference, Securi-Tay, last year.

You can catch me on IRC as zylche on Freenode in the #gsoc channel. On 
that note, is there any specific channel for entrants on this project to 
sit? Currently #owasp is there but its rather unofficial and there isn't 
much of a option otherwise.

Sincerely,
Ian Soutar
