Well before the Forrest=>ASF CMS migration, a discussion arose about how to deal with the
Documentation's inability to generate OFFLINE capabilities, and we resolved that the migration
needed to proceed irrespective of a solution to the inability to generate OFFLINE documentation.

Yes… It's a definite shame.

I noticed that the 'Add local mode option to CMS' JIRA Issue might have offer some help: 


It'll take some development time. I would like to look into it. I haven't played too much
with the buildbot (http://ci.apache.org/buildbot.html). Perhaps we could use `wget -m` (possibly
w/ a .wgetrc containing 'robots=off') to grab the site?

Create OFFLINE export of CMS output (PDF? HTML?) possibly using buildbot
