Yes but you're not supposed to take the changesets from the api to apply 
to your local database. Use the minutely or hourly files from 
http://planet.osm.org for that.

There are already tools that allow this, ie osmosis [1]. See [2] for 
some usage instuctions. Search the wiki to find other resources, there 
are plenty of them.
