Summit team (& Board)

Following the conversations we had last week, here is a proposed model for
how to identify the receipients of the current 50k,  and the other Summit
participants that also need funding.

Please note that this is just a first pass at figuring out this model, and
we really need to have this completed (and in format that makes sense)
before we open up the discussion to the rest of the OWASP Leaders (and
crowd-source this effort to them)

Please take a close look at the tables in: *

Hopefully it will make very clear why this is a complex issue and one that
we need to tackle with sensitivity

I used Jason's spreadsheet to map the Global Committee members and made a
number of changes to it :)

First please take a look at the *Global Committee Members *spreadsheet

This contains the lastest information received from the Committees. The
logic that we are using on this table is:

   - A = Active Committee Members -> to be sponsored on the 1st round (the
   50k we already have)
   - N = New Committee Members -> to be given 2 points in the 2nd Batch of
   - R = Reconfirmed Committee Members -> to be given 1 points in the 2nd
   Batch of Sponsorships

As you will see on the next spreadsheet, the N and R ones will have to
compete with the list that we are creating with the Chapter Leaders, Project
Leaders, Conference Organizers, historic OWASPers and key industry players
that can make it to the Summit (the logic to give 2 points to the new
Committee members is that we should give then the benefit of the doubt and
the fact that they are currently full of energy).

Remember that we will not be able to please everybody here since there are
always gaps between people's perceived contribution/value and what they
actually really did.

The next Spreadsheet to look at is the *2nd Batch - Sponsorships*
This table contains a consolidation of everybody we are currently aware that
could go to the Summit and could deserve funding (it basically has all Ns
and Rs (New and Reconfirmed) from the previous table and the people from
this table (that is not already covered by the 50k):  *
I took a first stab at creating a criteria for how to create the list of
'who gets sponsored first' (and for how much).

Here is the list that me and Sarah came up with in the first session spent
around that table (which ultimately is defining what 'creates values' at
OWASP and how much weight does it have):

   - Recommit Committee member 1 point
   - New Committee Member 2 points
   - Active Project Leader (New Project) 1 point OWASP Project created in
   the last 6 months
   - Active Project Leader (Major project) 2 point OWASP Project that has
   more than 6 month and has at least a Alpha release
   - Responded by 30th 2 point Can follow directions
   - Participated at AppSec 1 point
   - AppSec organizer in 2009/2010 2 points It takes a lot of work to
   organizing an OWASP AppSec
   - Active Chapter leaders 1 points Chapter had at least 3 meetings in last
   6 months
   - Key Industry player 2 point
   - OWASP Historic leaders 2 point
   - Special Invitation 4 points Individual who is critical for a particular
   Working session (and would bring more attendees)

Note that we are already at a 100K in 'sponsorship needed' value, I will
predict that the total amount of money needed will be about 150k (although
not all in that list will need the full 2000 USD, we should expect that
number of people to grow significantly).

The discusion about how to raise this 100k to 150k is a special discussion,
so please use this thread to talk about the selection criteria and how to
create the list of 'Who gets sponsored first'
