[WASC-WAFEC] Vote on making WAFEC a WASC/OWASP project

Presenting WAFEC by someone who does not represent a vendor makes a lot of
sense. I would like to point that there is no "WASC wants". WASC and WAFEC
are ours to make. WAFEC will be presented and promoted in conferences,
meetings, blogs etc if any of us as individuals select to do so. I will, you
can, and everyone else is also more than welcomed to.

In the context of the above (project name) item then *no* I don't have
reservations about OWASP based on the reasons stated in your proposal hence
my recommendation to remove WASC from the name of the (WAFEC) project.

However, if WASC would like to a) remove the vendor perception and b)
promote it to the wider community then this could be (better) achieved by
with end users (not vendors) presenting WAFEC at OWASP Chapters and
