[HOT] Boosting LearnOSM

Robert, Rafael, Paul, Kate & Severin (+?)

Anything I've created on the wiki is either directly from me, or an 
expansion of something that Severin has started & asked me to expand on. 
I have no problem copying that text & pasting it into something else, 
such as an email, google document or whatever else is needed & I have no 
wish to have any 'rights' over it. If someone with greater skills than 
me can produce something useful from it on LearnOSM, that would be 
great. Whatever they produce would be a rewrite of whatever I produced & 
would be more recent & would supersede the existing data on the wiki.

I can see that the screenshots would need redoing, but I have the 
originals, which I can place wherever they are needed - they are 
obviously derived from shots of OSM, JOSM, or ....., but surely that is 
the case with anything else that is in LearnOSM?

As I always do, I would then delete anything out of date I find, and add 
a link to where the new info can be found.

Is there a problem with this?
