                OWASP is defining our project sponsorship and branding
                model. Which of the following model do you want for
                OWASP? The voice of the community will decide this
                issue.<br>
                <br>

            Option 1: <b><b>Projects can be sponsored. </b>Project

                Project sponsorship and branding is an item that we've
                been working on at the board for quite some time.
                Through discussion we've realized there is not a single
                right model for OWASP. Instead there is a spectrum of
                approaches (decentralized decisions on branding vs
                centralized, logos or no logos, project sponsorship or
                foundation sponsorship etc). Each of these items have
                their own positives and negatives.<br>
                <br>
              </div>
              <div>However, one thing is clear. For OWASP to scale and
                grow we need to pick an approach and document it. This
                way everyone understands what the rules are, how to
                bring in new contributors and how to correctly
                acknowledge supporters & contributors.<br>
                <br>
              </div>
              <div>We'd like the OWASP community to cast a vote for the
                model they believe is best for OWASP. Before we vote on
                the issue we also want our community to help identify
                considerations for each model. What are the positives
                and negatives? Is there another approach that we should
                consider? Is there something we're not considering?<br>
                <br>
              </div>
              <div>The 3 approaches are listed here in the wiki<br>
