14b. Mirroring the FAQ

Mirroring The FAQ

The FAQ is available in various forms from this site (http://abma.x-maru.org/faq/annotated/). The primary (annotated) version is database-driven so is not amendable to mirroring at this time. However, two other versions are more mirror-friendly.

The Plain HTML Version

The plain HTML version is available at http://abma.x-maru.org/faq/plain/. This is a version of the FAQ formated as a single HTML document. It can be mirrored by simply downloading this URL, for example with the command wget -O abmafaq.html http://abma.x-maru.org/faq/plain/, or some equivalent method for your OS/toolset.

The Plain Text Version

For those who wish to mirror the FAQ as a plain text document, or would like such a version for transfer over non-HTML transports such as email or NNTP, the following URL can be used: http://abma.x-maru.org/faq/abmafaq.txt.

Announcing your mirror
