Just want to give you very possitive feedback and say thanks.:)
I mailed Hrvoje the patch roughly 50 minutes after the notification (and he
forwarded it to Mauro). Wget 1.10.2 was relased less than 14 hours after the
first mail brought our attention to this problem.
Both Hrvoje and Mauro acted swiftly and promptly. Nice going guys!
(The plan was originally to coordinate the security fix release with vendors
and between the curl and wget projects, but due to mistakes did the
notification accidentally become public immediately and we had to work really
fast to reduce the impact.)
