codeforces EDU has a collection of really great and educational problems. But I have a question, whether it would be fair to publish editorial for the problems in EDU section ?

On one hand it has contest like environment ( for example hiding system tests etc. ). This means, it can potentially be treated as publishing editorial/solution for an ongoing contest.

On the other hand, it also has a practice like environment ( for example, the different solution approaches are discussed in the comments). In that case it should not be a problem to publish editorials. CSES problems can be a good example here, it's editorial is readily available on codeforces.

So, I would like to know your opinion about this.

If I'm not mistaken, the agreement before you register for Edu asks you to not publish solutions or original materials from the site. I could be wrong though, could someone please confirm this?

If this is the case, then I think you should ask for permission before doing it (and assume that you're not allowed to until you receive explicit permission).
