Wikitravel dump

Wikitravel is a wiki for tourism information.

The content's license is open, but I can't find data dumps.

How/where can I can reasonably fresh dumps (wikicode of the articles) of the data?

Note: I need this data to update my project, the OxygenGuide portable travel guide.

According to this page on the Wikitravel site:

There are currently no database dumps of Wikitravel available for download. Some people have asked to make dumps available.

However, the article does go on to state:

Reasons to make dumps available

Reasons not to make dumps available

  • None?

So it looks like it is a work in progress at the moment. You could always sign up to help with the process of creating the data dumps.

Alternatively, you could use their API which is mentioned on this page.

API

A MediaWiki API for programmatic access to the site is available at http://wikitravel.org/wiki/code/api.php, where code is one of the language versions of Wikitravel, eg. "en" for English. When using the API, please follow the terms of use and download no more than one article every 30 seconds, or you may be blocked without warning.

I ended up creating a dumping project myself.
I made the download script open source, and the data is downloadable:

The community has switched to Wikivoyage, which provides regular data dumps:
