Using tiles from another source

Moataz Elmasry-3
Hello List

First of all thank you very much for the tilecache project. It is really
serving me well for my offline map

As I understood, there are two methods to obtain the tiles in tilecache
1- tilecache caches the tiles while browsing the map
2- use the seed_tiles script to generate tiles

But in both cases, I have to generate the tiles myself. But I know that
these tiles are already available on OSM for download, for example with script availabe through

But the downloaded folder structure is different than that used by
tilecache. My question is now is there a method to download tiles using
tilecache or a simple way to convert the folder structure of tiles from
another known tiles downloader for instance?

Best regards and thanks
