Hi Kim,

Looks like a good start, we are somewhat overwhelmed right now by regular 
work / metasploit 3.0, but this is definitely a project we would be able 
to support and contribute to. So far, my biggest demotivator for writing 
a Metasploit book is dealing with the publishers ;-)

Some things we need to define before we get started:

1) Writing perspective
2) Writing style
3) Chapter/section dependencies
4) Open to everyone/Open to registered authors

community effort, and  not knowing a lot about Wiki and the other
suggestions I took my lead form the fact that text can be used in any

I looked at a Table of content to start the process of deciding what
subjects a book should cover. What you see below is not even a draft,
just a loose sketch to get everyone started.

solution is chosen this will not be wasted
