What is the status of this task, now that Wikimania 2015 is over? Did this hacking project take place and was successfully finished? If yes: Please provide an update and potentially summarize findings / provide a link to anything relevant (and if the task is not completely finished yet, please move the project to the "Work continues after Mexico City" column on the #Wikimania-Hackathon-2015 workboard). If no: Please edit this task by removing the #Wikimania-Hackathon-2015 project from this task. Thanks for your help and keeping this task updated!

Sorry, for not getting back @Aklapper.
Here's the status of this task:
I've successfully implemented a prototype of the download manager, however, as the name implies it's a prototype, and thus needs more improvement. I will push it to another branch to our repositories on source forge, and link to the branch here.

A message to all open tasks related to the #Wikimania-Hackathon-2015. What do you need to complete this task? Do you need support from the Wikimedia Foundation to push it forward? Help promoting this project? Finding an intern to work on it? Organizing a developer sprint? Pitching it to WMF teams? Applying for a grant? If you need support, share your request at T107423: Evaluate which projects showcased at the Wikimania Hackathon 2015 should be supported further or contact me personally. Thank you!

Since Kiwik is not tracking tasks here and there is already a related ticket in the Kiwix project, I think we can consider this task about building a prototype resolved.
