As well as the original poster, I might be interested in raw gpx tracks data

It remind me of that thread :

But since old tracks don't get updated, since many people might just be ok 
with a simple tar.gz of all public visible gpx files (they'll do the fancy 
formating, database inserting,...)

Couldn't we just get them once with the API by ID ? and put it somewhere for 

Nothing fancy or complex

Some kind of script shell I just tried :

for x in `seq 1 1162147` ; do 
wget http://${auth}@www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/gpx/$x/details -O $x-
wget http://${auth}@www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/gpx/$x/data -O $x.gpx

some clean up and a tar and hop

One at a time, no multi-request, a quick test on 100 shows me in 3 day it's 

I'm willing to do it myself and share the result if it doesn't look too much a 
over load for the API
