This page describes a historic artifact in the history of OpenStreetMap. It does not reflect the current situation, but instead documents the historical concepts, issues, or ideas.
This was a guide on how to contribute to OpenStreetMap. In contrast to the beginners' guide it focused on editing OpenStreetMap only.
Impact on OpenStreetMap
It was one out of numerous attempts to update or rewrite the beginners' guide.
Reason for being historic
It has never been updated since its initial creation. The guide uses Potlatch 2 which is no longer available.
