[Owasp-leaders] Proposing new guidelines to start code/tool projects

After reviewing the entire list of code and tool projects , from incubator
to labs and flagship I have observed a main issue: Many projects start
without a single line of code, a binary or executable version of a program.

This really creates an 'empty' list of projects(more than 50 projects were
empty) that never launched or released a single line of code.

At OWASP we don't have an army of volunteers or paid staff to keep up
monitoring and maintain this, therefore I'm proposing a new guideline to
solve this issue. Anyone who wishes to start a project(tool/code) must have
at least:
-An open source repository
-At least some code written

The bar is low to allow development, but I think that any code/tool project
must have at least this in order to be consider incubator.

Let me know your thoughts and we can add this to the guidelines
