It missed a critical review issue: it does not have an authZ section. This
was Jeff¹s and my feedback (see
­ a comment I made a month ago). I am surprised and disappointed it has been
launched without one. Like you, I¹ve been focussed on other things
(primarily the T10), so mea culpa for not carefully reviewing it, but still
­ Jeff and I made it clear in e-mail (and in my case, the wiki as well) to
the project it was missing a major section, and that wasn¹t fixed.

However, as part of editing the book, we will be assigned a technical
editor. Let¹s get the Guide out there, and get some feedback. We need Matteo
to really shepherd each chapter through the process, and as part of that
process, we should:

Ensure that the Testing Guide AuthZ content makes it to its own chapter
* this means less content in business logic testing

Ensure that the Testing Guide, Code Review and Building Guide all have the
same headings (as per the SFA template)
* This means more Testing Guide content

But it¹s worthwhile to get onto NSP and say O¹Reilly (who own NSP) and see
if they can improve on NSP¹s contract. If not, we go with NSP. A core issue
is that the material MUST be available on the Wiki in various formats, not
just dead tree. Otherwise, no deal. NSP are okay with this.
