[Owasp-leaders] What is the OWASP definition of Open Source?

It is important to understand that within many large enterprises,
lawyers do have a say as to what types of open source can be used. To
the outside world, my comments will appear incoherent but to the inside
world, the things I discuss are real world impediments. 

FACT, I can use Scarab but I can't use ESAPI. I hate debating rationale
behind any thinking of any party, I just simply need for little
nickel/dime stuff to be addressed.

Lawyers also aren't the ones using OWASP products.  I have faith that
those who do use them are competent enough to provide the relevant
information to their legal oversight.

That said, the newly formed Web Site committee may want to take this as
an action item...
