Subject: wget: news:// and snews:// should be supported
Date: Mon, 10 Sep 2012 18:05:11 +0200
Package: wget
Version: 1.12-2.1
Severity: wishlist


Wget currenly does not know what to do with news:// and snews:// URLs.

Not many tools do.  Perhaps only lynx can do this at the moment.  But
lynx will only give a rendered version of the retrieved content.  wget
should be able to retrieve the raw article with all headers.

Hello,

a wishlist request from a wget user:

"Wget currenly does not know what to do with news:// and snews:// URLs.

Not many tools do.  Perhaps only lynx can do this at the moment.  But lynx
will only give a rendered version of the retrieved content.  wget should be
able to retrieve the raw article with all headers."
http://bugs.debian.org/687195

The news:// protocol is mentioned in bug #20392 Modular protocol support.

Thank you.

Regards

Noel Köthe
