This page is for archived multi-page ZIP files.

Under the CC-by and CC-by-nc-sa open content licenses, anyone who improves such materials or maintains them in their accurate form is obligated to redistribute them. An archived page is one that is no longer improving and must be stored in its last known form. It is also necessary to redistribute large sets of pages at once, to permit wiki forks.

Like most large public wikis, openpolitics.ca itself will satisfy this requirement by making their entire database available in .ZIP file form for download and use by anyone who is running the same software, i.e. tikiwiki, in our case.

These will be updated on a weekly or at worst monthly basis, and put on this page:

Note that major OP:upgrades and any major changes in editorial policy that result in losses of contributors or accounts require also a snapshot of the database as of that point of departure.

Note also that "archive" without a d is a verb, and "zip" is also a verb, so we can't use those to store things = nouns. See naming conventions.
