What software did you use?

The technical details of this offline release is available in Santhosh's blogpost.


As you can see from the online version of this offline release (http://www.mlwiki.in/wikisrccd/), we have used a different approach for display since the content of wikisource are books.

And how are you going to distribute it?

As of now we have produced 500 CDs to distribute among the participants of 4th Malayalam wikimeetup. It is almost over now. Now few social organizations, books, magazines, and so on have come forwrad to reuse the content of this CD for their various types of distributions. Malayalam Wikimedians do not have plans to produce more copies of this wikisource CD. We expect people outside wiki community will take over it now.
