I just hacked it together using wget and xslt. It is still quite rough,
but works.
Downloading can be done with wget -r -nH -np http://whatever/base/url/
However, there are css files missing then (wget doesn't follow @import
After that you can just apply the attached XSLT to remove the header and
add the disclaimer.

So far I only tested with the Deployment Guide. I wanted to know wether
that kind of solution is ok for you. If it is, I can probably create a
rather small script for mirroring and maintain it.


PS: Brad - sorry for hacking that together, but it looked so simple and
tempting that I coudln't resist.
