Jonathan,

Thank you for the feedback which is exactly what we need.

Have you looked at http://learnosm.org/en/coordination/remote/  & could you
give some feedback on it - I am one of the people who try to make it
useful. Feedback can be given by clicking on the pencil symbol on the
site,  sending an email to me,  or in a number of other ways.

Also,  where and how would you expect links to resources - many of us are
aware of the need and need feedback on the how.

Nick
