We can begin the 1st reviewing phase by review all 63 articles (nearly 13 articles per person). The deadline is 15th November at 20.00 (GMT+1) because we have 15th November as 1st deadline for the Autumn of Code Project.

We are waiting for the following articles

4.2.2 Spidering and googling (0%, Tom Brennan, Tom Ryan) DB Listener Testing (0%, Alexander Kornbrust)
4.5.5 HTTP Exploit (0%, Arian J.Evans) Stored procedure injection (0%,TD) Oracle testing (0%,Alexander Kornbrust)

5.1 How to value the real risk (50%, Daniel Cuthbert, Matteo Meucci, Sebastien Deleersnyder, Marco Morana)
5.2 How to write the report of the testing (0%, Daniel Cuthbert, Tom Brennan, Tom Ryan)

Reviewers Rules

1) Check the english language
2) Check the template: the articles on chapter 4 should have the following:

In some articles we don't need to talk about Gray Box Testing or other, so we can eliminate it.

3) Check the reference style. (I'd like to have all the referenced URLs visible because I have to produce also a pdf document of the Guide). I agree with Stefano, we have to use a reference like that:

== References ==


* [1] Author1, Author2: "Title" -<br>

* [2]...<br>


* Francois Larouche: "Multiple DBMS Sql Injection tool" - <br>

4) Check the reference with the other articles of the guide or with the other OWASP Project.

5) Other?
