Using LearnOSM material to compile new OSM documentation for OSGeo-Live #524
The OSGeo-Live team (https://live.osgeo.org/) is looking for new documentation for OSM (current OSM overview https://live.osgeo.org/en/overview/osm_overview.html and current quickstart tutorial https://live.osgeo.org/en/quickstart/osm_quickstart.html) and we are wondering if there is any volunteer from your project to help us compile a new quickstart document.

I would like to help you there :)

Our guidelines for writing OSGeo-Live documentation are linked from here:
Put the text into:
Put images as png into: https://github.com/hotosm/learnosm/blob/gh-pages/_posts/en/1900-12-21-start-josm.md
There may be some places where it would help to adjust text to align with OSGeo-Live. Eg: The applications are pre-installed on a VM or USB that people are running, typically in a classroom setting, so we don't need to tell people how to install.
This would be the minimum needed to get up and running.
If we want to improve quality and consistency, we can then improve the text to align with our writing standards. The UDig quickstart is our template project we use which contains writing tips:
Thanks for offering to help, Cameron
With help from @cvvergara, I've taken these ideditor and jsom docs and moved into OSGeo-Live Quickstart docs.
Actually I have just merged the pull request to a branch:
