This could do:

(snippet from a Makefile)
        [ -f bugs.txt ] && cp bugs.txt bugs.bak.txt
        /usr/bin/lynx -dump  http://www.debian.org/Bugs/db/ma/XXXXXXXXXXX.html 
        cat bugs.txt  | perl -ne 'print $$1 ."\n" if /\#(\d+):/' >BUGS
        sh download-bugs.sh

With download-bugs.sh being:
# Downloads bugs to text files
for i in `cat BUGS` ; do

#       if [ ! -f $DIR/bug-$i.txt ]; then
#       else
#       echo "Bug #$i already downloaded"
#       fi
# Not done since info on the bug might change..
        [ ! -d $DIR ] && mkdir $DIR
        echo "Downloading bug #$i"
        /usr/bin/lynx --dump "http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=$i&repeatmerged=yes"; 


Of course you have to change the URL in the Makefile to the one of _your_ 

Then you can just 'make bugs' and you will end with a directory 
('bugs-offline') full of your own bugs :-)
