I want to add my voice in support of what Paulo has accomplished and the
services he provides. His organization and diligence in managing a worldwide
federation of volunteers is nothing short of amazing. The foundation he
provides is one of the key factors in OWASP's growth.

Thank you!

> At the OWASP Summit, a discussion of a Season of Quality occurred.  I

> In our opinion, Paulo Coimbra is the Season of Quality.

> 2008 from its start.
> * He has tracked the 34 SoC projects, made sure that the review process

> * All new projects are required to meet certain guidelines, establish
> reviewers and be assessed based on the assessment criteria (alpha,
> beta,
> release).  Thus all new projects understand from inception that quality

> * He has been fundamental in the Global Projects Committee work
> generally and especially for the next season of code.
