docs - FreeBSD

Hi, I have a number of machines running FreeBSD and I would like to create a local mirror of the doentation available on the FreeBSD website. My problem is that I currently have a dial up connection (rural living :-) Is there a simple way to obtain a tarball of a mirror of the docs so that I can access the docs via a browser on my machine. I will have access to high speed for a couple of days next week so I would like to grab the info then. Better yet would be if the info is available ...

    Hi,

    I have a number of machines running FreeBSD and I would like to create
    a local mirror of the doentation available on the FreeBSD website.
    My problem is that I currently have a dial up connection (rural living
    :-)

    Is there a simple way to obtain a tarball of a mirror of the docs so
    that I can access the docs via a browser on my machine. I will have
    access to high speed for a couple of days next week so I would like to
    grab the info then. Better yet would be if the info is available via
    something like offline explorer so that I could set it to only grab
    updates on a regular basis.

    Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    If you only need HTML docs, I can build you a snapshot with a couple of
    formats, like FORMATS="html html-split", and upload it somewhere where
    you can grab it at your leisure.

    If you prefer copying the files yourself, you can recursively retrieve a
    copy of /pub/FreeBSD/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1 from one of the FTP mirrors.

    I think the "data" cvsup collection might serve the purpose nicely too.

    if the modem is a 2400bps then it might also be good to look at
    /usr/share/doc, as e.g. the handbook is there ;-)

    Ok, I just uploaded a snapshot build from today's doc/ tree at:

    http://keramida.serverhive.com/freebsd/doc/snapshots/current/en/

    The compressed tarballs of html-split and html output formats are
    relatively small (about 2.7 MB each), and they have been built with
    URL_RELPREFIX=yes to make local browsing easier.

    I have been planning to install a local tinderbox for the doc/ tree for
    a while now, so this may be a good chance to do it and add the necessary
    smarts for automatic uploading of successful builds ;-)
