Hey Nick,

Just to let you know that we have an Outreachy student successfully
selected for the 'Improve LearnOSM content and organisation' project. I
will send out a formal e-mail to the HOT mailing list tomorrow to introduce
them all to the community.

Althio is mentoring Anwar, but I believe he can still only co-mentor, so it
would be great if perhaps you could provide some guidance based on your
comments above and what you envision would be the best steps to improving
the content structure.

Kind regards,
