i have a slow unstable 4G-based internet connection, and nearly every time
i use: wget --continue --recursive --no-parent <url>
i keep hitting this specific bug in cygwin wget after ~10 skipped files or
so: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-wget/2017-12/msg00014.html

the bug was fixed in wget release 1.20.1 (from 2018-12) but cygwin is still
rolling 1.19.1 (from 2017-02),
so any idea when wget is going to get updated? or if there's no plans to
update wget in the near future, any chance of getting the fix backported?
