I have recently completed a draft of "Python. Vulnerability descriptions for
the language" for eventual submission to the International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
committee. This document enumerates the standard ways in which programming
languages are exposed to vulnerabilities, how Python is exposed to each, and
how to avoid each vulnerability.


I am seeking:

.        Advice as to the comprehensiveness and completeness of the
vulnerabilities and remedies;

.        Comments about the code examples and explanations;

.        Additional vulnerabilities;

.        Suggestions for improving the readability of the document; and

.        Any general suggestions including typos etc.


If you are interested please send me a short email with point of contact
information and your background/interest in the Python language.
