Daniel, I really don't understand your rage, but I'll try (again) to  
cope with anger. Anger has always been the worst of the counselors.

OSSTMM is in RC and will see the light in just a few time.
You can rest assured of this since I've talked with Pete about that a  
lot of times. (And is someone care I perfectly agree on "2.0 sucks",  
while 3.0 is another thing at all...).

I'm sure we can find an accommodation and I'm sure I'll be able to  
provide the 3.0 for review to a panel of OWASP... Or so I think... I  
may have to press Pete a little, but I'm sure that's feasible.
And I don't really believe in "insurmountable" tasks.

No one told you to give content to OSSTMM.
We were discussing in "taking" content from OSSTMM acknowledging the  
source and have OSSTMM "refer" to code within OWASP.
Sorry if my bad english went in the way and you were lead to think  
I'd give your work for a paid submission.. That wasn't my idea.

Hope this explain it all... And sorry again for my "spaghetti  
english" ;)
