On July 20th, Matt Kraai reported that the wget bug (while it does exist) does
not afflict the boot floppies.  So (since I am on vacation at the moment) I
felt I was able to ignore the problem with a clear conscience and so I have
been enjoying my vacation.  Your email seems to implay that Matt was not
correct in his assessment.  Is this indeed preventing net installs, or merely
preventing you from using wget at the command line?  If it is the former, I'll
get a new package uploaded tomorrow (Tuesday).  If this bug is merely
preventing wget from working at the command line, then I'll get a new package
put together on Saturday, when I get back from my vacation in Yellowstone.

Let me know,
