Egads!  I hadn't checked this mail for a while and didn't realize you had
reached back out.  Very sorry.  Plugging back in now.

> Hi folks,
> I am (if a lot belatedly) pleased to announce that we have a new project
> manager, Matt Konda, who I spoke with at AppSec USA. I want everyone to say
> hi and help him achieve our goals!
> Welcome Matt!
> I've started cutting back on the roadmap and really retreating to our core
> at Matt's suggestion. This is where you come in. 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.
> I have proposed four milestones for this year, one for each quarter. The
> first 3 quarters, I want to update all of the main 2005 content to be 2014
> ready, and then spend the last quarter providing a level of polish.
> 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.
> *Materials*
> Our materials were everywhere and in a rather poor state. So I've done
> some housecleaning.
> I've updated the Developer Guide home page:
> * https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Guide_Project#tab=Main
> Please review the milestone and wiki home here:
> * https://github.com/OWASP/DevGuide/wiki
> 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.
> I've uploaded all of the old Developer Guides to GitHub:
> * https://github.com/OWASP/DevGuide
> 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.
> * Volunteer (again if necessary) for chapters you are interested in,
> particularly in Milestone 1.
> * 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.
> thanks
> Andrew
