Another thought about the Wiki: I was first inclined to put my own Zaurus wiki online because I was a bit afraid that putting all my infos on a site I do not own. Let me explain, there are loads of Zaurus websites which have disappeared. So I was first reluctant to put infos on OESF wiki because if someday the site disappears, I won't be able to keep the infos on my computer.

So my suggestion is simple: would it be possible to download a complete Wiki backup for personnal archives?

Same applies for feeds, I have been searching for an ipk that seems to have disappeared (libstdc6 ipk)... I know I have to backup all those feeds on my computer, in case they disappear...

I'll look into this and see what I can do.. you're just looking for some kinda of database dump?

Basically yes, but if some files are in the /htdocs/mediawiki dir and provided there is no sensitive information stored there, maybe also a tarball of the dir would be nice along with the database dump.

I'll see what I can do.
