Hi,

    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:

utils/osm-extract
utils/osm-extract/polygons
utils/osm-extract/polygons/gb-irl.poly
utils/osm-extract/polygons/at.poly
utils/osm-extract/polygons/README
utils/osm-extract/polygons/extract-polygon.pl
utils/osm-extract/polygons/extract-germany.pl
utils/osm-extract/osm-subset.pl
utils/osm-extract/planetosm-excerpt-area.pl
utils/osm-extract/planetosm-excerpt-tags.pl
utils/osm-extract/README

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.

Bye
Frederik
