I'm trying to use osmconvert to get a csv file from the changesets-latest.osm dump. I did the following:

osmconvert changesets-latest.osm --csv="@id @created_at @numchange_changes @closed_at @min_lat @min_lon @max_lat @max_lon @user @uid" --csv-headline -o=changesets.csv

But this gave me nothing -- i just got an empty csv file. I dont think osmosis can be used to generate CSV files either. Any ideas?

osmconvert can only convert OSM files (which contain nodes, ways, relations) - not changeset files (which only contain meta data about who edited where when, but not real geodata).

If you need a CSV file with geodata, don't use changesets-latest, use the planet file or an exctract of that. If you need a CSV file with the metadata from changesets-latest, it looks like you'll have to write a few lines in a scripting language of your choice. Or XSLT, even.
