[Owasp-leaders] RFC: Assessment Criteria v2 in pictures

Hey Everyone.

The Global Projects Committee had established version 2 of the Assessment
Criteria awhile back, but there was still a lot of confusion about what we
were asking for at various stages and what it all meant. I can personally
assure everyone that we're trying our best to NOT make a confusing
bureaucratic process, but the perception might have been that way in the

So, to try to help address this problem, myself and the GPC put together
some diagrams to reflect the requirements of the new assessment criteria.
They're attached... as much as I hate to spam graphic attachments to
everyone, I'm doing it anyway since it's more likely you'll look at them if
it's less clicks :)

Take a look at the "Summary" one first. We would love to hear your feedback
on these. Namely,
 * Is it clear how we are separating a project's rating from the individual
releases the project makes? If not, what is confusing?
 * Do you understand what is required to advance a project's rating? If not,
what's missing?
 * Do you know how to apply the release criteria to your project? Is the
review process for alpha/beta/stable clear? If not, why?

We ultimately want to have a clarifying wiki page for each 'box' on the
Project Criteria and Release Criteria diagram, but we thought we'd get this
out to the leaders list to get your insight on improvements first.

Thanks, and we hope to hear back! (you can just reply to this list and not
bother CC'ing the GPC list since we're all on this one too)
