Ok, any hints on where I can find a planet-level .pbf file? The only
files I can find when linking from the Planet page
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Planet) download section are for the
more traditional bz2 files (planet-<date>-osm.bz2).
I found local area extracts in pbf format, but no planet pbf. I'm still
trying to grok the options and appreciate the continuing assistance.
