The well known tool GNU wget seems to have been left orphaned since the last year or so.
It is an interesting project to watch. How long can a well-known, well-used project be left to dry without anyone forking the source base and starting to improve it in a separate source tree?
People still mail in odd patches and bug reports to the mailing list, but there's no one with CVS access around.
The latest mail posted to the wget mailing list by the maintainer, Hrvoje Niksic, was posted back in December 2002.
