Description of problem:
When I try to download the recent youtube-dl release from github with spectool/wget, it fails:
LANG=C wget https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/raw/2011.01.30/youtube-dl
--2011-01-31 22:59:03-- https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/raw/2011.01.30/youtube-dl
Resolving github.com... 126.96.36.199
Connecting to github.com|188.8.131.52|:443... connected.
ERROR: certificate common name `*.github.com' doesn't match requested host name `github.com'.
To connect to github.com insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'.
Looking at the certificate shows me:
openssl s_client -connect github.com:443 | openssl x509 -text
X509v3 Subject Alternative Name:
Afaik this should mean that the certificate is valid for github.com
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget https://github.com/rg3/youtube-dl/raw/2011.01.30/youtube-dl
fails with certificate error
it should download the file
There's also a Debian bug regarding this issue (namely, failure to correctly check Subject Alternative Names for certificates):
Comments on that bug say that it has been fixed upstream but there has been no new release with the fix, despite it being well over a year since the fix was committed.
Would it be possible to extract the patch and add it to the current Fedora version?
I applied upstream's patch, but can only test by tomorrow. The Github example doesn't seem to cause problems on the original wget version anymore.
I just tried it and it doesn't complain any more, where the original version did. I assume it's working.
Please respond to this ticket!
