Routing newbies to tasks where they are reviewed by mentors? I would
have liked that.
This is an interesting idea.
While every project needs to have its task squares reviewed and
validated (at least once), the idea of creating some projects that new
contributors to HOT mapping are directed to and special attention is
placed on reviewing those completed task squares and providing feedback
as soon as absolutely possible seems like a good compromise between the
ideal world (lots of training and mentoring) and what we can
realistically do, especially when welcoming thousands of new mappers to
HOT/OSM during a major event.
It would also help give focus to experienced mappers who are doing
validation and feedback knowing that certain projects are where they
should always look to first to do validations.
I think we kind of, sort of do this now, but making it more explicit
would be a big improvement I think. It is at least worth a good solid
try at some point.
