Thanks Drazen for the update, and apologies for missing the meeting. Looking at what was discussed, I had few comments .. perhaps we can discuss here.

First regarding setting priorities, there are actually a couple ways we can group issues on github to prioritize. We can either assign labels, and/or assign milestones to issues. I think this would be fairly straightforward.

For LearnOSM, I think it's well overdue to have a discussion group specifically of translators and coordinators. If there's been a restructuring of the English version, then certainly need to get the word out and help transition. Finding a solution for image handling is something we can do collectively, and maybe develop a good structured request to prose.io devs.

Finally, OSM Tasking Manager version 2. Would be really good to hear from pgiraud about how much work is left. Basically, which of these issues need to completed to get functionality up to v1, and retire v1 https://github.com/pgiraud/osm-tasking-manager2/issues. There's a lot of interest in building on OSMTM coming up, and we need to know where and how to focus efforts.
