Based on this readme I found out that the diff is created by Osmosis in the first place.-- Harry Wood , 14 November 2007 (UTC) I think this phrase is ambiguous anyway.To ease off on the amount of data you're downloading, first of all think about using one of the Planet.osm#Mirrors, but also note that many of these are offering 'Extracts' of smaller areas. Secondly, avoid downloading the planet again on a regular basis.
