#11790 F40 Self-Contained Change: Wget2 as Wget
Closed: It's all good a month ago by jnsamyak. Opened 5 months ago by ngompa.

I would like to request Release Engineering to review the following Change Proposal: Wget2 as Wget.

I do not expect any effort involved by Release Engineering for this Change.

wget1 development is not discontinued https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/wget.git/log/

Why wget1 completely removed Fedora and not left as a replacement option for wget2?

While wget1 is maintained, most of the feature development is in wget2. And we only want to have a single provider for wget(1) in the distribution.

There is a point in leaving wget1 when what is needed is not new features, but compatibility.

wget2 is not fully compatible with wget1 https://gitlab.com/gnuwget/wget2/-/wikis/Home

Thanks for opening this ticket and looping us in, there was no release impact here! Closing this now :D
