Hi Denis,

the image looks great but there seems to be some problem with the tarball:

julien at banana:~$ tar xvfz openstreetmap-i18n.tar.bz2

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
julien at banana:~$ bunzip2 openstreetmap-i18n.tar.bz2
bunzip2: openstreetmap-i18n.tar.bz2 is not a bzip2 file.

Thanks for the hard work anyway !
