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.
