I really need for us to move to a more agile model as "big bang re-write" has failed miserably since 2005. So we're going to refactor not re-write. It's lot easier to edit than re-write. Also, you don't need Scrivener or Word or anything fancy, just a browser to contribute.

> Then repeat the process in 2015, updating only what must be updated in the first three quarters, but aim to write some of the new sections that I had set out in my massive TOC wish list, and then a polish in Q4 2015. Rinse and repeat in 2016. I don't want to ever get to a point that our main thing we are famous becomes like a historic curiosity.

> If you have donated content to us over the last 18 months, I will be putting it up on the Wiki at GitHub (access control + crypto from Kevin). The old Wiki at my VPS will go away. The old sourceforge CVS tree will go away. The old OWASP wiki content will eventually go away, probably late this year as we polish our material properly.

> Please don't fork the old content, it's there for historical reasons. I am still looking for content pre-1.0, so if you have some, please let me know. If you feel you have been left off the contributors page, please just update it or let me know. There is an effort to make a 2.1.1 DocBook version, which is nice, but I'd rather us spend our time on building the 2014 edition. 
> How you can help
> * Please review the material, road map, and Wiki.

> * Work in groups if you need, but basically, you only need a browser to contribute to the Guide. I will do the heavy lifting to build it into a PDF and move it to the OWASP wiki later this year.
> * Work with Matt Konda to deliver these chapters to a schedule that makes sense to both you and works with Matt's project management. This goes doubly for me. 
> Please let me know if you think the roadmap is achievable, and let's get this thing written.
