Hi Ray,

When this has been brought up before, there have been concerns over
privacy.  I think we should be able to get access to dumps from
selected tables though - eg current_blah , without user info.  Given
that planet2mysql.rb isn't importing the recent dumps, I would welcome
a MySQL dump for the simplicity and speed of import.  With a MySQL
dump, I would start to produce localized datasets from OSM data, which
I think there's a lot of demand for at the moment.

+1 from me,
