As you mentioned in the first paragraph its Romanian, not Bulgarian mappers

As I mentioned on my blog I will try to write a more detailed tutorial about
this, but it will take me a few days probably.

And a little better translation of my post: "In order to help Eddy, who was
invited to present OSM on the national TV channel, I took the scripts he
used, and with little changes in order to fit my Mapnik installation I was
able to generate a few movies with the OSM evolution in Romania. The results
are not spectacular (compared to ITO World) but I think they show pretty
well the work of so many people."
