Whilst discussing the best way forward with training, the statistics 
from this page may be of interest:


You'll have noticed the 10,121 visitors so far this month.

LearnOSM is not perfect, in fact far from it. It does provide a central 
link which is 'owned' by HOT, and when training guides, video's, 
screencasts, etc.. are being produced, can I suggest you consider 
visiting https://github.com/hotosm/learnosm, and submitting a pull 
request or an issue, so that we can link to the new guide.

As several people have commented - there's no shortage of sites with 
guides how to get started. In my opinion, the problem is more to do with 
filtering them, so that you only get the newest & best. It is very 
difficult to tell what is maintained, what is not, and whether the 
advice is correct or not. Personally I will try to go back to the wiki 
articles I have been involved in during the past few years and updating 
them - I'm pretty well constantly updating, reviewing and adding to 
LearnOSM - any help appreciated!

Let's not throw away that which is good, but instead try to build from it.

When we discuss ways forward, funding and grants, please remember that 
everything requires the attention of the Tech team. I'm not a member and 
have no connections with them, but I do know that if we don't support 
them in whatever they need to make these thoughts actually happen, then 
it is just so much hot air.

Regards & please keep mapping - we need you all!
