Nothing too original about it. Pen-Testing images have been around, albeit rarely, for some time. The problem that most of them had, however, is that they were surrounded by skeletal on-line communities that were tucked back in some obscure corner of the Internet. They also tended to be largely incomplete.

What I mean is that you should be happy that so many people share your idea and want to help you making it happen. They will learn something by doing it and you have your project a step further. And if they don't make it no problem you didn't lost anything, but there has been activity. You help HTS and HTS helps you. Win-Win situation here.
Finding an effective means of sharing a project like that between multiple people would be necessary. I'm so accustomed to doing my own thing, that I've never explored any of the myriad of collaboration platforms that may be available.

Agreed. Once a functional point is reached, it would be submitted to a site admin/mod to peruse and make a decision regarding its integration with the main site.

Said team would release the starting/beta versions while anyone else could look at the project, make adjustments and send them into the original team who would take everything into consideration. That way it's completely open, but not to the point where anyone can mess it up. Kinda like the recode for HTS but without all the scare of it.
I'm game for that. Someplace to host the work in progress would be needed though, which, as above, I'm cripplingly ignorant of.
I'm still fairly occupied with the semester coming to a close next week but after that, I'll have a lot more free time to jump on this.
