¡Hola Óscar!

I'm interested and will definitely join the #notlm! I am passing this
forward to my fellow HOTties and Nicaragua mappers to see who else from
these (sub)communities would be interested to join.

As for the Nicaragua mapping party that was mentioned in the email to
talk-es, it seems that we're having the mapping party on February 22.
However, I've checked that it's ok that we can use our regular base for OSM
activities here in Managua also for #notlm.

Has there been any discussion on what could be possible target "projects"
or mapping areas for the night? I'd go a step ahead to that and welcome
participation to both our OSM Nica efforts to get the mapping of Nicaragua
ahead more broadly (there are still a number of towns and a whole bunch of
villages completely mapped) and of course participate in tracing HOT's Task
Manager jobs for humanitarian mapping. .. For anyone who'll be
participating and hasn't used the Tasking Manager I'll be happy to provide
remote guidance.

I'd also like to suggest a joint voice (+text) hangout for the event using
the wonderful Mumble system that HOT has been testing with good results.
It's installed on a HOT server and can be accessed with instructions
available here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mumble . I'll be happy
to support those that need help getting started with Mumble and my fellow
(native Spanish) Nica mapper Eduardo
can help anyone who prefers help in Spanish.

Look forward to this!

Saludos de Managua,
