No mention of it on the reboot project list either :(
>> I do recall at one point v4 was dependant upon Common Numbering being hammered out, https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Common_OWASP_Numbering, however the common numbering initiative has also stalled in the light of workloads (mine included) and other feedback. Common numbering or requirements has had a good deal of valid feedback:  CW's: https://lists.owasp.org/pipermail/owasp-common-numbering/attachments/20110707/5c2ba213/attachment-0001.pdf and SMC's: http://lists.owasp.org/pipermail/owasp-topten/2010-January/000583.html. Unfortunately it seems that common numbering/requirements will be delayed for months.
>> This is just my personal opinion but I don't think drafting TG v4 content be held up waiting for another project. I'm as guilty as anyone else for not being able to deal with common-numbering being moved forward. I think TGv4 could be aligned with common numbering/requirements later (before it goes Gold), or common numbering could be adopted for v5. As things stand v4 is almost 3 years old and lots of items which are currently relevant to developers and security analysts have been identified as missing from v3 (new for v4).
