Hello Team,

I see that now there is no option to save the documentation as PDF. Is there anyway I can get a offline copy? Or Did I miss something very important on offline documentation? I also saw that the pdf links had been moved and documentation team is following reST format.

I hope the Below steps would be useful for others. Packages required for the same are (in Centos 6.7): ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

python-sphinx texlive-latex

Procedure:- ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1) Move to the parent directory of respective project:

  ex:-   cd openstack-manuals/doc/admin-guide

2) Use sphinx-build to create latex files

  sphinx-build -b latex -c source/ source/ build/             # Files will be generated in build folder

3) Use pdflatex to convert these to single pdf file

  ex:- pdflatex -interaction=nonstopmode ArchGuideRst.tex    # -interaction=nonstopmode is 
                              # required so as to continue processing even incase of warnings/errors

The pdf appears to be readable.
