Description of problem:
The wget package in EL4 was bumped from version 1.9 to 1.10. Several option names were changed in new version, braking backward compatibility (and existing scripts that used them). Examples:
-C on/off --cache on/off replaced with --no-cache (short -C form removed)
--http-passwd replaced with --http-password
--proxy-passwd replaced with --proxy-password
There might be other options that changed names or were removed too (these are the ones I'm aware of).
Old options should be reintroduced to keep existing systems running.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compare original wget package (1.9.x), and updated wget (1.10.x) package
That's something which needs to be taken upstream. We can't deviate too much
from upstream sources and they have decided to standarize those commandline
parameter. There's no point in maintaining a patch for the old, obsolete
