Is there an offline version of the Arch Wiki?

Sometimes I find myself without an internet connection and in need of the wiki.  Obviously I wouldn't be able to get to the wiki without a connection, so is there a offline version that could be downloaded(I would prefer pdf but I can always make it into a pdf later)?  I'm sure it would be a large download but I am not worried about that.  I don't really feel like going to every page and saving it, but if it comes to that I will and I'll make my own offline version that I can pass out to other people who want it.

Thank you.

There is also a very well done Android application that lets you see the on-line version on your phone.  It is on Goggle Play.

I noticed there is an offline Android version as well, though I have not tried this, and am not sure if it is (or stays) up to date.

I'm a damn dirty hippie, I don't even have a phone. tongue

I think I found one.  The page names are terrible,  I can't easily find anything, but it's better than nothing.

Thanks, everyone.

I think I found an offline version.  I only looked at one page, but it was from the wiki.

I think I might try to make it into a pdf just so I can have it all in one file.

Keeping it up to date might be difficult.  Maybe I can write up a script to compare the offline pages to the online pages and then add the changes.

Time is not something I have much of though. :[  Damn life.

These packages should be regularly updated. You can flag the package out-of-date and see what happens.
