I have an extensive draft of over 1400 CVE names in approximately 300
vulnerability categories, called PLOVER.  It covers a broad range of
security issues, not just web apps, and it probably has a slightly
different angle on web app issues than OWASP.  It's basically my old
vulnerability auditing checklist on steroids.  It's recent enough to
include things like CSRF, request smuggling, permissive whitelists, and
eval injection.  It also includes some elements of "vulnerability theory"
that I haven't really seen covered elsewhere.  It will eventually be
distributed publicly, hopefully within a month, but I'd be glad to share
this privately with a working group in the meantime.

Note that I haven't fully compared it to the current T10 or Andrew's
latest document, although that's somewhere in the plan.
