I _really_ like the idea of a Top 10 AppSec TODO list.
This should be separate project to the existing Top 10, but one we should
push just as hard.
We can have a bun fight, sorry, discussion, about what should be on it and
the relative priorities, but I think we should make it happen.
I think this is just aimed at the development community, ie architects,
devs, QA.
And like Andrew proposed is the things people should be concentrating on but
currently arent.
Count me in.
