I would suggest that you speak (i.e. don't e-mail) Mark direct and
attempt to resolve this since it is adverse to our PR as Mark is one of the
people who founded OWASP?

Also, since Mark has raised the issue of the GPC selecting SourceForge for
reasons that I have disputed i.e.
I would like you to respond to this also when you have the time i.e. not as
urgent as the above?
