Hi Abraham,

I tried this on 18th October using Bootstrap script which didn't work.  I
didn't record errors that I saw on my screen, but then I tried this with
Manual Installation which uses default repository
https://github.com/owtf/owtf.git .  But, installation showed many errors
(most of those related to missing dependencies).  I then started browsing
development branches and tried some, but similar errors until I tried
lions2014 .  But, installation from latest development branch worked fine
for you on new Kali 2 VM.  So, I am thinking this may have something to do
with me upgrading from Kali 1.1.0 to 2.0.

I am thinking to create brand new VM with Kali 2 (instead of upgrading) and
try the latest version of OWTF (the one published as well as development
one) next and see if it works.

I didn't make full use of all the features of OWTF yet, but I'll do so soon
and keep you posted.

Thanks again and you have a joyous and happy new year in advance. :)
