I meant to send a mail about this a few weeks back but forgot. I have
convinced my new company to sponsor the Guide project along with the
Testing project. Basically what that will mean is we (Watchfire) will
pay for the development of a GPL web based tool that will run on the
OWASP portal to manage the DocBook content on-line using some kind of
work flow. 

The idea is the portal builds the pages from the DocBook content in CVS,
but we allow any registered user on the portal to suggest changes or
make comments on particular sections  by spawning a browser, allowing
them to modify the content and submitting it to a revue process for
consideration. If accepted it will update the CVS auto-magically. The
primary way to author will be as it is today, this app is aimed to
encourage feedback from web site visitors. 

Development should start end of Feb. and it will be built by David
Raphael. Well work out the design and send to this list for comments
before it gets started. There will be no changes to either projects
apart from a small logo on the project pages and a small logo on the
front of the DocBook cover (electronic), and inside cover for the
printed version.  

Let me know if you have any questions.

Mark
