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 . See  for
some usage instuctions. Search the wiki to find other resources, there
are plenty of them.
