Description Anna Khaitovich 2020-04-09 10:42:21 UTC


GNU Wget2 is the successor of GNU Wget, a file and recursive website downloader.
Designed and written from scratch it wraps around libwget, that provides the basic
functions needed by a web client.
Wget2 works multi-threaded and uses many features to allow fast operation.
In many cases Wget2 downloads much faster than Wget1.x due to HTTP2, HTTP compression,
parallel connections and use of If-Modified-Since HTTP header.

Comment 1 Peter Lemenkov 2020-04-10 10:59:49 UTC
Provides: libtool
Provides: wget2-debugsource = 1.99.2-1

# Versioned libraries

^^^ This looks wrong. Please remove it. 


^^^ These files shouldn't be packaged.

Comment 2 Peter Lemenkov 2020-04-10 11:01:10 UTC
Also you likely mean devel sub-packages of these packages, not the packages itself:

BuildRequires: gnutls
BuildRequires: libidn2 >= 0.14
BuildRequires: flex >= 2.5.35

# Optional

Comment 6 Neal Gompa 2021-05-05 11:33:32 UTC
Anna, we don't generally ship libtool archives, so those should be deleted. The end result would be that we wouldn't have a -static subpackage.

Please delete libtool archives and remove the -static subpackage.


Comment 7 Neal Gompa 2021-09-26 15:00:53 UTC
As Anna no longer works at Red Hat and cannot be contacted, this review is effectively dead and superseded by a new one.
