Hi althio and all, 

As an organizer of information and a newbie, my opinion is to leave everything in one list and not divide it. It should be alphabetic. 

There is a lot to learn reading through a Glossary, and it’s always useful to have everything in one place. It’s easy to find what you are looking for when organized alphabetically. If you want, you could annotate which terms are for OSM, HOT, and Activation in parentheses at the end of each entry. We have done that when a glossary combines words from different languages or references similar to this situation. It’s also important to format the page so the entries are easy to read.

Hi all,

I am not sure how to handle the glossary mixture of:
- basic OSM terms
- basic HOT terms
- advanced HOT/Activation terms

I mean the growing glossary page could become overwhelming for a beginner.

What do you think?
All glossay in one continuous page? One page, sections by topics?
Differents pages, one glossary by section

Back to the content, a few proposals:
- We could read through the content of LearnOSM to flag terms that
need to be included in the glossary (best done by newcomers!)
- We could take a pick in the OSM wiki glossary and see if any of
those terms is used in LearnOSM
