>  
> The proposed guidelines for this more are (updated based on comments from the
> group and WASC officers):
> ·         The name, when affiliation is used, would be "The WASC/OWASP Web
> Application Firewall Evaluation Criteria".
> 
> ·         Governance would be mutual, i.e. any decision about the project
> which is not within the project team itself has to be agreed upon by the OWASP
> GPC (i.e. Project Committee) and by the WASC officers. The project leader is
> the arbitrator in case of a conflict (this change is based on a request by
> Jeremiah Grossman, WASC founder).
> 
> ·         Participation is open for all and does not require being an OWASP or
> a WASC member.
