[mkgmap-dev] Merging pbf files before splitter/mkgmap fails

Hi Paco,

I suggest to try processing addresses.osm  on its own first. 
Do you get the expected data in the img file?
Is this still the case when you convert the file to pbf with osmconvert?

> I've got a (huge) list of addresses in CSV format. I want to add them to the pbf file from geofabrik before running splitter/mkgmap. Those addresses aren't in OSM.
> I converted the CSV file to an .osm file. The script produces the addresses with a negative osm id.
> I then use osmconvert :
> ./osmconvert geofabrik.osm.pbf addresses.osm --out-pbf -o=complete.pbf
> No error returned. The complete.pbf file is correctly processed by the splitter/mkgmap toolchain. But the map doesn't show the addresses.
> I tried to look for the problem : 
> - The .osm file seems correct, it opens correctly in JOSM.
> - Converting the .osm file to .pbf format before merging doesn't help
> - Something funny : after merging, the .pbf file is slightly smaller than the geofabrik one. osmconvert does a more efficient job at creating pbf files ?
> I guess that the problem lies in the merging part but I didn't find any inspection tool for the pbf format.
> Can anybody help ?
