Hi Pablo, thank you for your patch.

I can't accept it as it currently stands, for the following reasons:

  • free(px) is dangerous, px_proxy_factory_free should be used instead.
  • The indentation and coding style does not match Wget's guidelines; see the "Standards and coding style" section of http://wget.addictivecode.org/PatchGuidelines
  • A dependency on pkgconfig is introduced that I'd prefer to avoid if possible.

Dominique Leuenberger, one of the libproxy developers, has also supplied a patch, which looks a bit more suitable; however, it too needs some adjustments (outlined in the mailing list; hasn't shown up in the archives yet).

I'm going to set Patch: No to remove it from my queue of unreviewed patches, until I hear back on Dominique regarding the suggested changes.

Current development sources are at http://hg.addictivecode.org/wget/mainline, patches should be against that.

this patch provide a libproxy (http://code.google.com/p/libproxy/) integration and autotools config.
