Re: [Bug-wget] [PATCH] Add env. variable info to manpage

The wget manpage is generated automatically from the texinfo-format
manual, so patches to the manual aren't usable.

As is typical for GNU software, the manpage lacks a great deal of
information that is present in the full manual (the infopage, or the one
you find online). The manpage makes a point of stating this.

If you want to add a patch that changes the way the manpage is generated
from the info page, so that the information is included, I imagine that
might be welcomed.
