[Owasp-leaders] OWASP Election

OK, after having read a bit on this, I'm left with a gut feel that (c)(3)
is a closer fit to what I think OWASP is about, but it is nothing more than
a gut feel. Reading the emails, I think other people are in a similar
position, although their personal gut feel might not be the opposite to
mine. So, I repeat my earlier request:

*Please can someone give a balanced, FUD-free, impartial list of the key
differences including things that we could and could not do under each
different scheme.*

It clearly is a very important issue and not one that should be decided on
the basis of gut feel.

Mike
