That's a good idea.

How about whenever the tarball is released, a snapshot of the DWM wiki.

I wasn't talking about the whole wiki. Just the sections pertaining to DWM. For example, under only the tuorial and the customisation section can be included (don't need the manpages, screenshots, etc):

 1. /tutorial.html
 2. /customisation
   - ./customfuncs.html
   - ./font.html
   - ./noapps.html
   - ./noinpu.html
   - ./patch_queue.html
   - ./tagmask.html
   - ./windows_key.html

I'm sure the above once compressed will be less than a few kilobytes.
