[Owasp_framework_security_project] Reviving the Project

Hi Everyone,

Not long ago a few of us had a discussion on the leaders email list
about improving the APIs that developers use on a day-to-day basis
with the idea that it would help novice developers avoid common
vulnerabilities.  You can read more on the thread I started here:
  http://lists.owasp.org/pipermail/owasp-leaders/2015-November/015507.html

A few of us decided it makes sense to start a project, though fully
realizing it could be a huge undertaking.  I started poking around the
OWASP site, working out how to get it started, when I stumbled across
the older effort that Michael Coates initiated (the reason this email
list exists).  I realized that the goals we have in mind are very much
in line with this project's, though the specific technologies may be
slightly different.  Since this frameworks project has been inactive
for a while, I proposed to Michael that we try to revive it and figure
out a way to make it sustainable, which he is supportive of.

My next step is to get to work documenting a roadmap I think we could
follow to make some early progress and attract more volunteers.  I
think if we start small and break up the work into small units, then
it will be easier to get lots of people to lend a hand in certain
areas where they are subject matter experts.

I'm definitely interested to hear from anyone who joined the old
initiative who would be interested in pitching in on this new effort.

Thanks,
tim
