[Owasp-leaders] OWASP Mobile Top 10 - potential conflict of interest in M10

Part of the real challenge here is that we did not make the data for 2014
open and transparent for everyone to see. Hence, there is a lot of
speculation that this is driven by some corrupt process.  Nothing could be
further from the truth.

For the 2015 list, we agreed that the data would be publicly exposed for
everyone to see to understand how the categories were arrived at.  We have
already agreed that the 2014 list was finalized and any changes would be
make for 2015 as there was plenty of time and opportunity for community

By agreeing to change the list after it has already been agreed upon, we
are undermining the credibility of the process and the process of taking a
data-driven approach to this.
