As the Global Projects Committee works on completing the preparation for 
the next season of code, we are revamping the assessment criteria from 
the Summer of Code 2009.  We've taken the lessons learned plus the 
feedback from discussions (e.g. the Summit in Portugal) to draft a new 

To that end, here is an early draft of conceptually how projects will be 
categorized and assessed.

You will find this page linked off the Global Projects Committee wiki 
page under Draft Documents.

The principal changes are:
(1)  Breaking projects into three primary categories:
      * Tools
      * Documents
      * Activities and Research
(2)  Breaking projects into two component pieces
      * the project's OWASP wiki page
      * one or more project deliverables

More details are available at the link above.  Remember this is part of 
the drive to improve the quality of all OWASP projects and better serve 
the application security community at large.  Your feedback is welcome. 
  Please feel free to reply to this thread.

Additional notices will go out to the OWASP leaders list as new sections 
of the document are posted.
