Sam and Mark,
I see the steps for myself as such, once we get this down, we can move more 
1.  Read the sans docs.  This will give us a lower end benchmark, based on 
what mark has said.
2.  Choose sections to work on, perhaps one each to start with.
3.  Create outlines of content to go into sections
4.  Have Mark approve , comment , cticize, laugh etc at what we propose
5.  Fill in the content for the section
6.  Step 4 on our results.

Once we are comforable with the level of detail required, we can take the 
same approach to the other sections. I think we would then be able to set a 
time in the future for a first draft, and then work backwards, would you not 
agree?  Mark, not to fear, yours is a quick glance and a yea or nay.  In the 
latter, a pointing in the right direction might be offered.

Lastly, I am not sure what your background is?  For my part,  I am not a 
security 'guru'  (hate that term btw - but am obliged to use it).   So, what 
I don't know, I research - which is part of the reason I have an ambition to 
do such a project.  I spent the past two years doing application development 
and network debugging for a network security firm, I learned a lot, but was 
not invovled in pen-testing and a lot of IDS or Vuln Assessement rule 
writting - a bit though.  I also have my CISSP, and have a tried and tested 
understanding of things ISO.  So, I humbly submit to you that this will be a 
learning experience for me. If you can have peace with that - then all is 
well - let read the Sans Docs.  Then, let's chose a section to hammer out.

Thanks for pushing on this Sam...its easy to let the urgent things push out 
the important ones - and for me personally this is of longer terms
