[Owasp-board] Common structure and numbering for all guides - new WS is being proposed

I have been asked by Keith Turpin, project leader for the OWASP Secure
Coding Practices - Quick Reference Guide, about the rationale of discussing
a common structure and numbering for all guides inside the WS we have set up
to work on his project and consequently reached the conclusion that it would
be better if we created a working session to deal with this issue


I am proposing we create a separate WS named 'Common structure and numbering
for all guides' for two main reasons as follows:


-        If my memory doesn't fail me, apart from several other OWASP
contributors, every single leader of each guide (Testing, Development, Code
Review, ASVS, Top 10, ASDR) has already attributed importance and urgency to
discussing this matter and so I conclude it has enough nobleness to be dealt
with on its own. 


-        This issue is currently being addressed in four different WS
(Testing Guide + Development + Java + Secure Coding Practices) and so we
face the danger of reaching different findings concerning the same issue.


I also propose we create this new WS under the Metrics Track.


Please let me know your thoughts as soon as possible.


- Paulo
