LeanOSM would be far more useful if it wasn’t a HOT political pamphlet spouting an extremely biased and exclusive view of what OSM is, excludig the majority of the OSM community. If it was not so, it would be a useful starting point for beginners, nowyou can’t point anybody except budding SJWs to it.
