[Owasp-board] Owasp mission

A while ago we had as OWASP mission (in the home page I think)

Enable organizations to develop, maintain, and purchase applications that
they can trust through the development of free, open, and unbiased
application security documentation, tools, chapters, and conferences.

Now we are back to

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is dedicated to finding
and fighting the causes of insecure software.

Which I don't realy like since it is framing what we do as a fight (which is
not) and uses the very abstract concept of 'insecure software'.

I know that 'trust' is also an subjective concept, but it is more related to
the real world which revolves around: trust, consequences and risk
mitigation.

Can we agree on a Mission and Tag line for Owasp here? (note the page
http://www.owasp.org/index.php/About_The_Open_Web_Application_Security_Projecthas
a variation of the first one)
