Subject: [WASC-SATEC] Phase II: Are you an author or reviewer?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
So we have been working for about 4-5 months now, trying to figure out
what matters most to software companies which may be trying to acquire a
Static Code Analysis tool. I think we have a very good set of criteria,
which were vetted several times, these were captured in the form of
categories and sub-categories (headers and sub-headers mainly) in the
Wiki page here
So now we got the categories and sub-categories locked down, we need to
start the next phase, which is about fleshing the categories and
sub-categories out and explain what each of them means. If you need an
example, please visit the WASSEC project
get a sense of how the finished criteria would look like.
Now, we need authors who are going to actually start fleshing out
(write\explain) the categories and sub-categories and we need reviewers
who will review the authors' work and suggest modifications.
if you have cycles in the next two month, please reply to this email
with either "Author" or "Reviewer" to indicate the role you would like
to play in the next period.
Ideally, we would like to keep the workload per contributor to less than
2 hours a week for the next two months. We should be able to achieve
this considering that we have almost 40 people on this mailing list.
Please let me know if you had any comments, suggestions or questions.
