Sorry for the late reply!

Definitely, I think that the tutorial is excellent and I will look into porting it to the platform itself ASAP :))

There is a detailed contribution guide in the repo, and I’ve also added a more obvious ‘Contribute to project’ ribbon on the site, so people looking to contribute will have an easy and straight forward way to add content.

I haven’t really thought about a ‘whole picture’ of the story yet, though the idea of it is to help "Bob get home", and to craft a story that will intuitively explain concepts. I guess I will create a new file for this.

I added a note to put it in the public domain.

Now that the GSoC is over, how does this project continue? What's the best way to add content? Who oversees the 'whole picture' or rather story?

Is there some outline of how the story progresses? What topics are explained and in what order? To be honest, I thought the storyline was part of the GSoC project, but I guess providing a platform for hosting it, is not the easiest thing to do in itself.

Hello Jo!

This is definitely an awesome addition!

In fact, we’re looking into bringing everything in the exercises, adding different ‘modules’ to learn different features (i.e. MapCSS, Recursion, different export types, etc).

I've started to write a storyline myself. It's for a more advanced lesson in the series, I think...

It's about public transport, where Bob finds himself in Brussels. A city where 3 operators are active with a metro and tram lines, next to buses.

It explains how to put all the nodes of an area into a variable, then filter that into other variables. It also shows how to get to the ways with specific properties.

Of course it also touches on the various types of relations used for mapping public transport. I'm starting on that part now.

Does it make sense to add it to the series? I realise it's a more advanced topic.
