Hi all,
Thanks for considering the suggestion. Its very useful to have documents offline and personally like pdf.

I think Kaushik is referring to *including* a PDF export of the
wikibook in the release tarball.
His reasoning is that ubiquitous Internet connections are not the rule
all over the world.

I believe this is a good idea. It shouldn't be much more work as part
of the release process to first commit to the repo the latest export
of the wikibook?

Very good point.

Since 2.0 each module will also be documented locally (under the doc
directory of each module). This will give you local documentation .

It differs from the wikipedia in the way that is version dependent.
a) The Wikibook aims to have the latest version documentation.
b) The local documentation is module-dependent, so it might not give
you the comprehensive approach as in a book.

Yes, you're right Luis. I like this option. Will be in pydoc?

Probably  we could have both.

What do you think ?
I think is a good idea to include the book/manual in the release. I didn't 
think that way to Kaushik's question.

But what about to use HTML docs instead of PDF?

Hi Kaushik,

You can convert Wikibooks articles to PDF by using the "Download as PDF" 
feature located in the left column/block (Print/export section) of the page.

Hope this helps.

Hello all,
              I just thought it would be nice to have the wikibooks or
any other documentation in pdf format. So I can download it and read
it in my nook reader.  Importantly, its good not to rely on internet
in developing countries.
Just a thought.
