manuals.rubyonrails.com down AGAIN!

Anyone have any information on this? As others have said in past threads, I would be more than willing to host a mirror for the site. In fact, barring any copyright notices I find on the site, next time it's up I'm going to rip it for my own personal benefit, and I may as well put it up as a mirror in static HTML format.

You could build the docs from source if you don't want to wait for the
site to come back up.

#1 - create a dummy rails project, e.g. "rails-1_2-rc-apidoc"
#2 - change directories, e.g. "cd rails-1_2-rc-apidoc"
#3 - check out the rails source into that project, e.g. "svn co
http://dev.rubyonrails.org/svn/rails/branches/1-2-pre-release/
vendor/rails"
#4 - generate the api docs, "rake doc:rerails"
#5 - point your browser at doc/api/index.html

If you prefer, use "stable" rather than the "1-2-pre-release" branch.

Manuals are different than the API; the API docs are available at
http://api.rubyonrails.org/ but the manuals are...well...manuals.
Narrative texts that explain how to do something such as routing or
deployment.

And again, I, too, can host or chip in to pay for a mirror.

Of course. Time to call it a day, I guess.. :slight_smile:

Actually, I don't really need any of the Rails manuals, specifically. What I was looking for last week was the Capistrano manual, which is not available anywhere else AFAIK. I don't recall if there's anything else
