I couldn't find out who runs the OSM wiki, so i'll ask here. Kiwix support apparently requires something called Parasoid API ( ) to be installed by the admins.

The benefit of this is offline access to the entire OSM wiki using Kiwix, a cross-platform wikipedia viewer.

there is no point in me acting as a go between you simply need to send mail to the address above. And please include documentation that shows that the proposed extension is actualy supported etc.

Of course, but a random email appears as spam or phishing attempt and is disregarded.

Your random question also doesn't appear to be spam, so give it at least a try.

Thanks, I have. This may be more likely to be implemented if supported by more than one member of the OSM community.
