exactly my point. unfortunately mokopedia 
 * was wikipedia DB dumps oriented (thus cannot be applied to OM wiki)
 * is pretty much dead and ad-hoc from what I see

wget, wwwoffle etc spider downloaders are not an option even if someone
would craft very careful set of options to don't download wiki
diffs,logs,etc. I just installed wwwoffle to see what is the beast... in
few minutes it started caching wiki.openmoko.org, I said "cool", but
then I saw that it sceduled massive amount of diffs of wiki pages (which
sure thing are available) -- so I had to kill it.

I guess we should direct this question to the admin of OM wiki...
who take care about the website according to
where I was trying to comment on 
which is pretty much what we need for offline support
but got
