This is a good question, and something we discussed at the time we wrote
What was decided at the time was that we would change the sample data
when we moved location, but we would also access the data via a symbolic
You will notice that we also have the following line in the script:
ln -s /usr/local/share/osm/Barcelona.osm.bz2 /usr/local/share/data/osm
