Description Lars Kotthoff 2007-08-24 09:24:47 UTC
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.

Reproducible: Always

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; Gentoo is not a correct place for feature requests.
Comment 2 Lars Kotthoff 2007-08-24 09:42:11 UTC
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.

We don't apply stuff rejected by upstream.
