[OSM-dev] planet.osm extract scripts moved within SVN

some of you may already have seen that the SVN repository has been
re-sorted a bit. One result of this is that the scripts for creating
extracts from planet.osm are now located here:
There are now four separate tools that extract a part of a planet file:
- the "polygon" set of tools that runs off a built-in polygon or polygon
stored in a file;
- the excerpt-area tool that takes a bounding box on the command line;
- the excerpt-tags tool where you modify the Perl code to excerpt only
data with certain key/value things
- the osm-subset tool which also operates on rectangular bounding boxes
but they are taken from a list of pre-defined areas in a Perl module.
If anyone knows of other tools that serve the same purpose, please move
them to osm-extract and modify the README accordingly.
While I'm at it, would everybody who has commited something to SVN
somewhere - and can still find it after our reordering session ;-) -
make sure that there is a README file in the directory stating what the
purpose and/or status of the software is, that would really help new
programmers and people wanting to create an inventory of applications.
