teachers in our university courses who used it to download what their
students did, but since the WMF decided to break it, evidently they are not
using it anymore. I repeat: it worked and it was broken in purpose. So now
we have an option to create a book but no actual book can be created,
besides printing it with PediaPress.

a statistics page that shows how often do people use this feature.

which means that volunteer localizers are asked to
translate it with
(relatively) high priority.
