Hi Matthias,

Don't we all :)

I tried to create an extract of the full history file using osmosis, 
which seemed to work in the sense that osmosis did not generate any 
errors. The existence of a dedicated script leads me to believe that 
osmosis is not the tool to make these extracts.

It is a very specific topic but one that will gain more importance as 
OSM keeps growing and evolving. What we are doing with the OSM historu 
in our team is developing a method to determine local OSM quality based 
on historical evolution of the data and the characteristics of the 
individual contributors.
