What I mean is that if we create a main wiki page with a separate wiki
page for each major portion of the project instead of one HUGE wiki
page, I can't get wget to follow links in the wiki page to grab those
Take an example:
I can use wget or a browser on the TOC, Chapter1-page, and Chapter2-page,
but I end up with three separate html pages not really linked (in fact,
the links in the TOC still point to the wiki not the files I download
At your end, could you create an html.gz of all three with functioning
internal links? It would be great if this was automated and there was a
button that someone could click to download a snapshot at any time.
