Hi Michael,

Nice to hear from you again. I vaguely remember a mention of someone who wanted
to work on this feature. When deciding to make this work, please remember that
any of this can only work if the site does not rely on Javascript; which given
Wordpress is a difficult thing. The reason for this is that we do _not_ intend
to ship a javascript engine alongwith Wget2. It is too large, unwieldy and too
much of a maintenance nightmare. However, if the site can work without
Javascript, then I would assume that Wget2 can already handle making a static
copy. If it can't handle something, please let us know / file a bug report
about it.

Of course, I welcome you to work on Wget2 as you see fit. And we would love to
look at any contributions you can make. We will also try and help you out as
much as possible when dealing with the codebase.

About the dev setup, I only use vim and gdb to work with Wget. As Tim has
already mentioned, he uses Netbeans and might be able to help you out.

You also mentioned something about the lib/ directory. That is an
auto-generated dir with compatibility libs that you don't need to care about.
All the code for Wget2 is in src/ and the code for the library is in libwget/.
Those are the two main directories you need to care about. And of course tests/
for the tests.
