[Owasp-guide] Owasp-guide Digest, Vol 30, Issue 1

I apologize.

I thought that the content was not really addressing the issue related to
output encoding.  It seemed to just copy a chapter from the previous guide

This is a collaborative effort so if you feel like the content needs to be
updated, you are a co-author and have at it. 

I feel the writing spirit move me and when I get inspired, I sometimes get
carried away.

I put my email in there because I know that output encoding is a complicated
issue and I was sure that there would be questions on what I wrote. 

The doc is not set in stone so if you feel that was in appropriate, I or you
can remove it.

The important thing is that we get content for the new guide.

Hi Abe

I'm afraid that you have jumped the gun.

Vishal's schedule (see below your email) states to recycle old content -
which I believe is still very valid - by the end of Jan 2011.
Thereafter a collaborative approach will be followed to develop new content.
It will then be reviewed and updated.

Quite frankly I do not appreciate that you merrily jump in, remove the
recycled content originating form the old guide, and replace it with yours.
Also, what's with the "Good luck and email me (abraham.kang at owasp.org) with
any questions."? 

Regarding the content you have created, I see it as valuable but it would
have to be aligned with the ASVS. I think it is too complex for an
introduction and should rather reside in a subsection of the future

Can you please rollback to the previous version?
