Hi all,

I'm happy to announce that Mike Boberski has agreed to become the Development Guide's PM. Mike's other OWASP efforts includes the Application Security Verification Standard, various cheat sheets, and ESAPI for PHP. I'm sure I've missed a few projects here and there. 

His duties will include:

* Volunteer coordination - allocation of work, etc
* Maintaining the Guide's Wiki project pages, road map, etc
* Status updates - encouraging folks to check in regularly
* Quality Control

I still propose that the Development Guide move to be the detailed design guide for the Application Security Verification Standard's requirements. We can be a superset of that standard, but at a minimum, we need to cover off every single control mentioned in the ASVS. I still want us to donate any material that is testing or review related to the other Guides to trim down our total size. 

The first thing we need to do is get a workable road map, and a proposed timeline that is realistic. For that, can you please indicate if you have time to volunteer for a chapter. The more volunteers we have the higher chances of a release. 

Please welcome Mike aboard!
