Update of bug #45732 (project wget):

                  Status:                 Invalid => Needs Discussion       


Follow-up Comment #3:

That makes more sense. However, there's more than one way of doing this.

Wget also supports reading from a user's netrc file. If we start mentioning
everything in there, the section will quickly degenerate into a different
topic. This is mentioned as a footnote.

I think could however add a note there asking the user to refer to se3ction
2.5 which contains more information about password handling. Maybe, if someone
is willing, we can also have an entire section on password handling mechanisms
and workarounds.
