<p>Does anyone know of any other mechanism for loading an osm file into the database?</p>
</blockquote>
<p>This is definitely a part of the OSM ecosystem that I have struggled to understand. It seems there are a whole suite of tools for taking OSM data which <em>have already been extracted</em> from the database defined in this repository and importing into <em>other tools</em>, but I haven't come across anything but <code>osmium</code> for importing data directly into the database defined in this repository.</p>
<blockquote>
<p>I imagine it's a fairly common task for small deployments.</p>
</blockquote>
<p>Just to clarify, is there another tool you'd recommend for "large deployments" or am I reading too much into you comment?</p>
