Dear all,

I have been actively participating in LearnOSM for a few months now
and here is my first report of the community work on this project.

1. Status of material in English
Sections are being added, reorganised and updated, in particular:
--Coordination: http://learnosm.org/en/coordination/
--Note to new volunteers: http://learnosm.org/en/coordination/nepal-disaster/
--Smartphone app: http://learnosm.org/en/mobile-mapping/osmtracker/
Thank you Nick @Nick-Tallguy for your sustained hard work to improve
the materials!

Special thanks to Win @gitGOwin for his various corrections and his
full update of:
--Smartphone app v2: http://learnosm.org/en/mobile-mapping/osmand2/

More thanks to Daniel @CloCkWeRX, Jessica @jmarlena, Brad @neuhausr,
Manuel @humitos, Blake @bgirardot for all contributions big and small
in our GitHub repository.

I also would like to salute people contributing behind the scenes or

@pyrog for the input, Nick @Nick-Tallguy for the cleanup, Jessica
@jmarlena, Alex @lxbarth, Mikel @mikelmaron and members of the HOT
Training Working Group.
