Many students have asked how to get involved in OWASP.  These are great
opportunities for them to get some hands on experience!  Please, submit your
needs here:  http://www.tfaforms.com/262386 and they will be posted.

I dont know of any cross project 'help wanted' page, but I cant pass up an
opportunity like this ;)

We're always looking for contributors to ZAP!
I'm going to claim that ZAP is the most popular OWASP tool right now - its
the 5th most popular page on the wiki (based on the number of hits over the
last few months).
There are loads of things people can contribute to:
* ZAP coding projects: http://code.google.com/p/zaproxy/wiki/Projects
* Translation: http://crowdin.net/project/owasp-zap
* Tutorial videos: http://code.google.com/p/zaproxy/wiki/VideoTutorials
* Updating the help files
* Anything else you fancy doing ;)

ZAP is a community project, so we'll support anyone who wants to get

All contributions are credited - the credits for the last version are here:
http://code.google.com/p/zaproxy/wiki/HelpCredits and the list for the next
version will be even longer ;)
