As I promised during the marketing telecon, I have taken an edit pass
through the draft whitepaper.  I edited for grammar and readability
only, not for technical content.  There are a few outstanding issues
that I explain in the discussion page.

Subject: [OpenAjaxMarketing] Wiki page created for white paper on "Ajax
andMashup Security"

I have completed the first steps towards a white paper on "Ajax and
Mashup Security". As has been discussed in the Marketing and Security
committees, the proposed plan is to develop this white paper as a joint
effort between the Marketing WG and the Security TF. 

Here is the white paper as it stands today:
* http://www.openajax.org/member/wiki/WP3_-_Ajax_and_Mashup_Security

Here is what I am thinking about the process for finishing this white

Early phase:
* Security TF does most of the work.
* Marketing WG monitors and offers high-level feedback

Late phase:
* Marketing WG performs detailed editorial review
* Marketing WG authorizes publishing to the OpenAjax web site as an
official white paper and for use within magazine articles
* Security TF participates in these discussions and complains if it sees
something it doesn't like (which is unlikely)

This white paper might proceed quickly, and there are advantages with
speed. The reason why the white paper might proceed quickly is that some
IBM researchers have already written a very nice article and we have
permission from the authors and IBM to create a derivative work so long
as we include the notice "First published by IBM developerWorks at
http://www.ibm.com/developerWorks/." The advantage of moving quickly is
that we have an opportunity to publish the article in the September
edition of AJAXWorld magazine, which will be distributed to all
attendees of the AJAXWorld conference. Getting this article into the
magazine would be a benefit to the community and would be a big plus
towards promoting OpenAjax.

My opinion is that with a small amount of effort in the next few weeks,
we can complete this white paper in time for AJAXWorld magazine. The
deadline is a bit slippery, where they would like the articles submitted
by July 31 but have given good indication that mid August probably is
soon enough. I believe the original article is nearly suitable in its
original form, with only minor changes needed to adapt for
appropriateness for OpenAjax Alliance. I inserted my list of recommended
changes (highlight in red) onto the wiki page for the article.

If anyone sees any problems with this approach, please speak up via
email or speak up during one of the next telecons (i.e., Marketing
telecon or Security telecon).


PS: Regarding AJAXWorld magazine, I also promised two other articles, an
update on where things stand with OpenAjax Alliance (probably steal
content from my latest slide decks and from
http://www.openajax.org/about.html), and another article on the OpenAjax
Hub (probably repurpose content from
http://www.openajax.org/OpenAjax%20Hub.html, which we developed within
the marketing committee recently). There is also a small chance of an
AJAXWorld article on Mobile Ajax.
