Preparing downloads is cumbersome because booktitle and URL dont match. I wrote two PERL-scripts:
The idea is to mark each book that shall be downloaded with an "x" in the first column of this spreadsheet.
... manual "x" insertion ...
./gutenbergopenofficefetch may get a second argument if you wish to change the download server, eg.: ./gutenbergopenofficefetch catalog.rdf.sxc "ftp://pandemonium.tiscali.de/pub/gutenberg/"
