Well said Eoin and Dinis.

I think smaller more project-focus mini-summits are potentially the 
answer here. The are also a LOT more cost effective for the foundation 
so we can save funds for more critical hires, like a IT pro to manage 
our infrastructure.

I have never agreed with Dinis so much in a 7 day period. I'm really 
worried that the time-space continuum will rip apart, or something to 
that effect....

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'
