While on the topic, another contractor that owasp dramatically needs is an webmaster/MediaWiki person for our website.

It is amazing that that website keeps holding up with NO dedicated resource to manage it.

Our website is only our main interface to our audience and we need to invest on it.

Ok, maybe we don't hire a full time resource, but there are plenty of talent out there that we should be contracting.

Again, I don't this this is a budget issue, it is a strategic decision.

There is still a perception that we already spent enough on our employees and that they should 'pick up these other tasks' . My view is that this is completely wrong, these tasks require professional knowledge, and anyway, our current (amazing) owasp employees are already overwhelmed with they normal 'day jobs'

So next time, you guys complain about our website or wiki, remember that there is nobody currently managing it (so who will spend the time solving your (important) request?)
