Hi Guys,

I will be using presidents day to get my tasks completed and in the CVS
by Tuesday. We all set our selves the end of Feb for this round of

I know quite a few great additions are already in but quite a few
aren't. If anyone is going to miss the deadline, please let us know as
early as possible so we can re-allocate.

We have now spoken to No Starch Press (www.nostarch.com)at length. I am
really happy that this will be good thing for us all and they will be a
great partner to work with. Every author will be clearly named. All
proceeds will be placed into the OWASP Foundation apart from $5k USD
(which is needed to get backup servers and permanent hosting in place)
All the proceeds will be split on a "number of pages authored" basis to
be put towards travel to an OWASP meeting later this year. We will work
out the details of that in a few weeks. 

The process is for the completed draft to be sent to the publishers for
editing by the end of March. They will work on the graphics and language
changes and we will of course inherit the changes. If you are doing
graphics or need graphics you can describe them in words or with
sketches for the publishers. Just worth a mention is that the fact we
have a publisher doesn't mean we can slip on quality and we do need to
ensure the first submitted draft to No Starch reads well and is accurate
We of course have March to do this QA. They expect to be able to turn
around the book and get it into the shops in less than 12 weeks !

Take care.
