This patch adds the capability to selectively download based on the content-type information in the header. The new commandline options are --content-type for acceptable types and --content-type-exclude for inacceptable types.
Steps to Reproduce:
The patch has been out for quite a while now and tested by several people, so it should be fairly stable (tm).
See http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/#requests; Gentoo is not a correct place for feature requests.
This is not a feature request, this is a request to include the patch in the ebuild. I've tried to submit it to wget-patches several times to get it included in an official release, but my submissions were ignored.
