[OWASP-TESTING] Next stage

I understand your will to push people to help, but I think that the lack of volunteers so far is not just a matter of "freeloaders". My perception is that there are some other issues involved, here: people that are not native english speakers, for instance, or people that feel that their technical skills are not enough to take full care of a whole section but that still are willing to help.

About me, I can provide added value on authentication, input injection and encryption sections, but because of time (and probably "language") constraints, I am not sure I can take "a real 100% lead" on any of them ;)

I haven't put a word limit on the sections, so feel free to go as  
deep as you need to (ill be editing them to make it flow etc, so no  
worries about that)

On another note, for a list that has over 80 people subscribed, ive  
only seen 4 offers!
I will give it a week and the people who havent contacted me, will be  
removed from the list. Yes this is harsh but this isnt a freeloading  
list and it does require input from everyone on the list (work/time  
constraints are taken into consideration)
