This is great work guys.


I spent most of the day finishing this up, and it's almost done. I also
ended up making a bunch of changes to the OWASP site to line things up a bit
with the references in this document.


Anyway. I think an hour or two of final touches from Andrew is all that's
necessary to get this done. I say Andrew because the biggest holes left are
in the PHP file include section, and some CVE entries that someone needs to
find (I'm hoping he's an expert at this). I also have 3-4 comments that I
think he can address easily.


Everything that needs work still is either marked in Yellow or has a
comment. Everything else is ready to go in my opinion.


Andrew, any chance you could knock this out over the weekend so its review
for review by Monday?


Thanks, Dave


p.s. I would also like to propose a Spring of Code project to line up the
proper depth of and organization of content for the OWASP Top 10 on the
OWASP site.  For some of the T10 topics, we have good stuff out on the wiki,
but for some we don't. We SHOULD have 4 articles on each of the Top 10
topics in the Wiki organized as described here:


I think a 'small' Spring of Code project could easily pull all this together
and maybe do a whole lot more.

Hi everyone,


I'm getting excited about this - a real improvement over previous versions.
I've updated these a lot (to the point where tracking was interfering with
editing a good bit).  There are still some things to fill in - many are
highlighted in yellow.  But I'm losing focus.


I like the schedule Dinis proposed, although I think we should play it by
ear to see if we need so many rounds.  Like software if we get to a release
candidate that proves stable, we should call it final and release.

Andrew are we set to go?

I want to include a reference to the Top 10 in this week's newsletter

Jeff should have a new draft this morning.  


He was unhappy that the headings as we discussed in November didn't come
through, just as I was unhappy with November's headings not relating
directly to MITRE's raw data (with the exception of CSRF). With the new
draft, we'll need to de-emphasize the MITRE correlation as it no longer is
strictly true.

Hi Andrew, I think that this is ready for public distribution. 

I propose the following plan.

1) 'RC1 release' email to owasp-leaders
2) 1 week later RC1 email to owasp-all, multiple security mailing lists and
3) 1 month later, 1st revision of comments, release of RC2 and go through
another round of peer review 
4) 1 month later, 2nd revision of comments, release RC3 for final proof
(this might not be to owasp-all, probaly just to owasp-topten and
owasp-leaders mailing list) 
5) 2 weeks later, release final version (and do a big presentation about it
at the next OWASP conference)

Hi guys, 

here's the release candidate draft I've worked on through the weekend. 
It takes into account all of our conversations through November.
However, it does make one change - input validation. This is really 
part of the raw data at #7, and I'd prefer not to have three access
control headings and no input validation. So we have two access 
control headings instead.

Please review, and if acceptable, forward to owasp-topten and 
owasp-leaders. Once we're happy it can be seen outside, it's time for
outside comment.
