Hi Kevin,

You need to recycle the old content from the previous dev guide. I had
looked at the logs and I could see the last modification on that page was
made by you on 26th April and since then no updates has been made to that
page. At this stage, you may want to go back to the old guide and recycle
the content from there and may also submit a proposal for new additions to
the project leads. Then we all will go through this and come back with
recommendations for further work.

Regarding suggestions for ASVS, it would be best to speak to ASVS team as
they are the best people to update ASVS standard. Once they have added your
suggestions to the ASVS, then we may be good to add this to the dev guide as
