FreeBSD Bugzilla – Bug 61155
[Approved] new port: ftp/wget-devel
Last modified: 2004-01-17 09:34:23 UTC
devel/wget starts to lag behind the releases of wget.
At least with a development version we are able to figure out when
it is stable enough to ftp/wget updated.
Fix: Requires a repocopy of ftp/wget to ftp/wget-devel
Once this on has been commited it should be considered to drop
ftp/wget+ipv6 since this port takes IPv6 into account too.
With regards to PR ports/61155 (new port: ftp/wget-devel), please
repocopy ftp/wget to ftp/wget-devel.

I don't update it due to at least these two regressions over
a) wget-1.9.x depends on IPv4-mapped IPv6 address and this is not
accepted. Fixed in CVS HEAD.
b) Large file support > 2GB. The author is working on it.
I think the next major release will have both fixed, and 1.9 branch
has no future. I don't want to recommend 1.9.x to anyone because it
does not work well over 1.8.2_5, but also don't want to discourage
