If the remote file that we are trying to download via wget is a metalink xml file then it would be nice if wget had an option to automatically parse that file and then retrieve the target. This is the behavior of the curl --metalink option today.


curl --metalink 'https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-23&arch=x86_64'

Maybe we could make this option be --metalink?
