4 lines of code are worth 20 nodes, but you must submit it to SVN for
it to be recorded.
That's not intended to be a serious response, but the point is that
there are ways to measure these things. I can't find the email now
that referred to this I'm pretty sure it wasn't saying that uploading
nodes would be the only way to be a member, it would just be one of a
number of ways. This would allow people who weren't able to afford the
membership fee to still be allowed in, but you with your broken leg
would still be able to pay to join. I imagine the number of nodes/ways
uploaded would be checked over a period of a whole year or something
like that anyway meaning that so long as you weren't off your feet for
too long you could still contribute that way.
Regardless, sorry to hear about your leg, hope you're back on your
feet and mapping soon :-)
