Hello,

a wishlist request from a wget user:

"Wget currenly does not know what to do with news:// and snews:// URLs.

Not many tools do. Perhaps only lynx can do this at the moment. But lynx will only give a rendered version of the retrieved content. wget should be able to retrieve the raw article with all headers."
http://bugs.debian.org/687195

The news:// protocol is mentioned in bug #20392 Modular protocol support.

Thank you.

Regards

Noel Köthe
