Paul is saying that the OSM wiki license is actually more restrictive than LearnOSM, so it’s a problem with that license. We would have to make our license more restrictive – and hence less useful to others – if we wanted to go that way. Which is super frustrating of course.

Yes. But you can't use data from the OSM wiki for the LearnOSM project, if I am not wrong.

Maybe it would be feasible to change the license of LearnOSM to the
OSM Wiki license. As not many people are involved (I think) in the
English original version, not many people would have to be asked for.
LearnOSM is licensed CC0, so no permission is needed to take it and redistribute as CC BY-SA, or to redistribute as any license, including a non-open one.
