Follow-up Comment #2, bug #48811 (project wget):

Hi Basin,

I'm new to the wget community, but I have looked through the program logic for
ftp and http password and realized it is wrong.

BEFORE changes

Initially, search_netrc function was called first, and if it existed, the
password was assigned to passwd, and used in the next logic step ( this is
WRONG because if the user entered the password with --ask-password, then that
should be given priority ).

passwd = passwd ? passwd : ......

AFTER changes

I have changed the logic such that it first sees if there is an --ask-password
passwd stored, and if it is not there, then it uses the netrc password.

I have attached the corresponding patch file to this. Please have a look :-)

This would be my first contribution to wget (GNU) as well and so eagerly
waiting for the code review!

(file #39280)
