Description Amir Caspi 2011-03-10 06:36:01 EST
Description of problem:

RHEL 5.6 ships with wget 1.11; v1.12 adds some very needed features (particularly the ability to parse CSS files for recursion).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEL 6 currently uses v1.12 - I would love if the newer version could also be implemented in RHEL 5.x.
