I am the one maintaining wget-git on AUR, so I do use the latest version
anyways. However, as the maintainer of GNU Wget, I am interested in what
keeps Arch Linux from adopting the newest version yet. It's been flagged
out of date for almost three months now. If there is something that prevent
Arch from shipping it, we'd love to hear and help.
