My comments on the "Open Letter to the OWASP Board from the OWASP Chapters"

Thanks Josh (and others who put this Open Letter together) for the effort and passion on Owasp and in continuing to try to find solutions to improve the current situation

Although I don't agree 100% with the solutions presented in this document (see some of my ideas below), I'm happy to sign it since this is the kind of fact based discussions and conversations that we must have as a community (one request, can we put this letter in a GitHub repo so that we can send comments using git and sign it using Pull Requests)

Note that I have not been that involved lately in Owasp foundation threads (including reading all my email), but the key themes of decentralisation and openness are key for Owasp future and require creative solutions

My view on situations like this Open Letter, is that this is a great example of the passion that our community has for Owasp (which is a very positive thing). It is not good that they needed to resort to an Open Letter to raise the issue, but what is important is how we all react to the challenge and help to improve Owasp's future and organisation
