Description: Libwww is a general-purpose Web API written in C for Unix and Windows (Win32). With a highly extensible and layered API, it can accommodate many different types of applications including clients, robots, etc. The purpose of libwww is to provide a highly optimized HTTP sample implementation as well as other Internet protocols and to serve as a testbed for protocol experiments. Libwww also supports HTTPS, through OpenSSL.

w3c-libwww has also been submitted as bug 178310.

The other submitted w3c-libwww seems to me to be in better shape, as it has some
important patches allready, it uses macros better and the separation of apps in
a subpackage seems right to me. In fact the other seems to be derived from the
fedora core package while this one isn't. However, this one was the first to be
submitted so it should be the one considered. Maybe you could get in touch with
the submitter of the other bug or restart from the spec file in the other bug,
or get the good ideas from the other submission?

The other package was originally in Extras and it only makes sense for that one
to go back in to Extras.  No sense in recreating the wheel if it's already been

Go ahead and add the one mentioned in bug 178310.
