The Wikimedia Foundation offers wikipedias in nearly 300 languages. In addition, the WMF has several other projects (e.g. wikibooks, wiktionary, etc.) for a total of around 1000 wikis.
Wp-mirror is a free utility for mirroring any desired set of these wikis. That is, it builds a wiki farm that the user can browse locally.  Many users need such off-line access, often for reasons of mobility, availability, and privacy.  Wp-mirror builds a complete mirror with original size images. Wp-mirror is robust and uses check-pointing to resume after interruption.

Wp-mirror by default mirrors the `simple wikipedia', the `simple wiktionary' (Simple English means shorter sentences), and the `wikidata wiki' (a centralized collection of facts usable by all other wikis).  The default should work `out-of-the-box' with no user configuration.  It should build in 200ks (two days), occupy 150G of disk space, be served locally by virtual hosts <>, <>, and <>, and update automatically every week.  The default should be suitable for anyone who learned English as a second language (ESL).

The top ten wikipedias are: en, de, nl, fr, it, ru, es, sv, pl, and ja. Because wp-mirror uses original size image files, the top ten are too large to fit on a laptop with a single 500G disk, unless the user does not need the images (and this is configurable). The `en wikipedia' is the most demanding case.  It should build in 1Ms (twelve days), occupy 3T of disk space, be served locally by virtual host <>, and update automatically every month.
