I don't recall any discussion of a new interface at the chapter leaders
workshops. Jim Manico and I went through the wiki editing and cleanup
process but there wasn't much time for a future directions discussion,
unfortunately. I was hoping to do a brief series of usability tests but we
ran out of time. Recording here:


There have been a few threads on the board and leaders lists on the topic.
The board has been focussing discussion on the funding proposals.

I have held two open discussions on GotoMeeting with Jim and members of the
Wiki Editing team. Johanna suggested using something like Matt Konda's
suggested github pages for developers (http://owasp.github.io/dev-pages/).

I also suggested getting a graduate course to take on OWASP for a usability
study. I know a few good professors in NYC who could use a project like
this for their classes.

Notes from Oct 1 meeting:

Wiki Editing meeting/gotomeeting

October 1, 2015

Jim suggests:

Turn on Wiki Editing System

-Has badge system

-Has controls

Hire someone to turn on the plug-ins

Better path is to support wiki editing process we have (rather than move to
a new wiki or other system)

Wikimedia editorial oversight and control features


Categorize the wiki

Tools to crawl the wiki

Two types of volunteers

   - Technical review
   - Editorial review-has subject matter expertise

Missing from Wiki Cleanup team

   - Prioritize actions

Top level reorganization:

   - Categorize links by language
   - Categorize /or just arrange content by audience

https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Java_Project has good
resources for developing a list for Java developers


-Review orphan pages for uncategorized redirects

-Review and fix broken links

Do you have any discussion points to publish on this topic from AppSecUSA
meeting or other activity to date.

With global budgeting coming up if it is going to happen in 2016 now is the
time to do it.
