Description of problem:
"wget --recursive ..." (fails to download any files. It download the directory
listing only, and stops. Using exact same args on RHEL4 works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(working version on RHEL4: wget-1.10.2-0.40E)
Invoke recusive download of some small directory:
Steps to Reproduce:
one file named "index.html"
All the files in the directory, just as RHEL4 version of wget did.
Probably same as bug 239420 in fc6.
Proposing a rebase for wget to version 1.11 for RHEL-5.3 and granting Devel ACK.
The wget-1.10.2-to11.patch is basically the problem, bringing wget-1.10.2 close
to wget-1.11. A rebase will fix this and several other issues that the pre11
Read ya, Phil
Will be fixed together with #387321 and #436822, but a rebase is not allowed in
FastTrack. Moved to 5.4
Marking as a higher prio and severity as the current state of wget in RHEL-5 needs definite improvement and a rebase to wget-1.11 will cover all those bugs and more.
Adding keyword Rebase as well.
Thanks & regards, Phil

Major features + changes between wget 1.10.2 (RHEL5.3) and rebased
- The combination of -r or -p with -O, emits a warning as all downloaded
content will be placed in the single file specified with -O
- The combination of -N with -O, emits a warning as timestamping does nothing
in combination with -O
- Wget 1.11 no longer alloweds ".." to persist at the beginning of URLs,
for improved conformance with RFC 3986. As this behavior presents
problems for some FTP setups this is still allowed for FTP URLs only.
- No authentication credentials are sent until a challenge is issued,
for improved security.
- Added option --auth-no-challenge to support some obscure servers which
never send HTTP authentication challenges, but accept unsolicited auth info.
- Timestamping now uses the value from the most recent HTTP response,
rather than the first one it got.
- Authentication information is no longer sent as part of the Referer
header in recursive fetches.
- Added --max-redirect option, allowing the user to specify what should
be the maximum number of HTTP redirects to follow.
- Wget now supports saving HTTP downloads using file names specified by
the `Content-Disposition' header.
- The new option `--ignore-case' makes Wget ignore case when
matching files, directories, and wildcards. This affects the -X, -I,
-A, and -R options, as well as globbing in FTP URLs.
