I currently maintain an italian GIMP site (static pages, not so often
updated, I'm wondering to switch to a CMS...). 

I want to mantain a local snapshot of the html and pdf version of the
manual, on line and in compressed versions. 

Thanks to the Ulf wonderful work, now the entire bulding process work
flawlessly (as far as I can see) and I'll try even to automate it.

If you need a hand to do the same on the reference site, I'll be glad to help.
Another idea is that it could be nice if the docs site could be 
that will be wonderfull and, obviously, I am here to help for the italian
