I would like the ability to export selected or all questions and answers in a forum (along with the option to include all comments) as a pdf for offline viewing.

http://www.xhtml2pdf.com/ can be used for this purpose I think.

Great, good luck. You may need some patience for understanding of the reportlabs library.

Great, I notice that you have your virtual environment in the repository - it's better to add it to your .gitignore

Apologies for the delay, I was busy with my new job :). I managed to pull of something small, I have the functionality implemented here https://github.com/sagarun/askbot-devel/tree/export-pdf . It requires reportlab. The pdf generated is very basic.

Thanks a million and happy new year! Hopefully we'll find the time to look at it in 2011.
