Nick, thanks for replying to Tom;


Tom, also LearnOSM and other training tools are loosely organized by our Training Working Group (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Humanitarian_OSM_Team/Working_groups/Training), which you are welcome to attend our next meeting, don’t pay attention to the wiki-schedule, the next meeting is going to be at 08:00 UTC next Monday.


Thanks for your interest, and I say ‘loosely’ organized because don’t hesitate to work on stuff via this mailing list or github as well,

Thanks for your interest in this. The site is maintained at https://github.com/hotosm/learnosm, and the instructions on updating it are found at https://github.com/hotosm/learnosm/blob/gh-pages/CONTRIBUTING.md

I also have a repository where I've been testing things out, and I have notes there on how to set up & maintain the files on my laptop after a crash - they are not in a fit state to be published, but I successfully used them when I recently changed my laptop. The notes are within the issues here:


If you do use my notes, I'd be interested in feedback as some could be incorporated into a quickstart guide.

I don't know anything about the tools, but I'm good at documentation and this seems to be a chance for me to learn. If there is a formal LearnOSM project, how do I join and what E-mail lists should I sign up for?

Thanks Nick 

Badly, the LearnOSM table of contents do not yet mention it. Blake also 
mentionned to me after I sent this email. 

We need solutions to facilitate the management of the LearnOSM project. 
Let's hope that we will have the possibility to progress on this over 
the next year.

This section of LearnOSM; 


has sections on both OSMand & OSMTracker, but they are probably in need 
of a review. I've been a long time user of both, and each has evolved, 
but the principles in LearnOSM will probably be enough to get someone 
started. The last time I checked on the stats, they were one of the most 
visited sections of LearnOSM 

There has been a recent discussion thread on the googleGroups OSMand 
section, and someone has posted this link (I haven't had the chance to 
fully read it yet) 


Also, the OSMand site itself http://osmand.net/ which contains some info. 

And lastly, and the one I find easiest - on the app. itself, click on 
the question mark and a help screen with links appears. 

I'd like to check the LearnOSM site on these subjects, but am completely 
swamped at the moment, so can only offer to 'try when I can'. 

I hope this helps.
