What I usually do is uploading them using a command line script found
here: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Batch_Upload#CURL

curl -u user:password -H "Expect: " -F "file=@"file.gpx -F
description=description \
   -F tags=tags -F visibility=public
http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/gpx/create

this can easily be automated, and you can set different tags for each
one of the gpx.

So far I've uploaded more than 1000 GPX:
