Re: RFC: updated package wget-1.7.1-1

It looks pretty good to me -- I rebuilt it from source right now and it 
seems okay.  The *only* quibble I have is that the binary package 
contains this file:


Since it is just a copy of /usr/doc/wget-1.7.1/sample.wgetrc, you should 
probably just add some logic to your postinstall shell script:

if [ ! -f /etc/wgetrc ]; then
   cp /usr/doc/wget-1.7.1/sample.wgetrc /etc/wgetrc

Of course, future versions must take care to change the 
/usr/doc/wget-1.7.1/ path in that script...
