Manuals?

Even though it's in Google's index the Rails manual
(http://railsmanual.com/etc) is always out of action and seems to have
been for a very long time. Anyone got any idea which site we should use
or somewhere we can download the entire manuals?

Check http://guides.rails.info/ for now.

We'll soon have those up at
manual.rubyonrails.org/guides.rubyonrails.org. And also add a rake
task to generate them inside your regular rails app.
