Dear talk-us,

    I'm now making daily OSM data extracts available for the US Census 
Regions (as per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Us_regdiv.svg) on 
download.geofabrik.de. I will not do a full US or full North America 
extract because I think it is too big (anyone who can process that might 
as well process the planet file), but I think the Census Regions might 
make sense to some.

I'm planning to add individual states later on.

The extracts are in .osm.pbf format exclusively, you will need Osmosis 
0.27 or the new pbf2osm (see dev list) to process them. A modified 
osm2pgsql able to read these files directly, and more quickly than any 
bzipped XML, is on its way.
