I don't know if this would be of interest but to quote http://nmap.org/soc/

"Web scanning specialist

This position is perfect for a budding web guru with intimate
knowledge and interest in web-related standards and protocols,
particularly HTTP and HTML. SSL, Javascript, CSS, and XML are
important too. An understanding of common web vulnerabilities such as
SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) will also help. Tools to
look at for inspiration include Burp Suite and w3af. Nmap already has
quite a few HTTP scripts that you can find on the NSEDoc Portal, but
many of them could use improvement and they only scratch the surface
of possible scripts. The web has grown to dominate the Internet, so it
is crucial that Nmap have solid web scanning capabilities."

Also, aside from lcamtuf is there a reason as to why OWASP does not
have a similar relationship to Google?
