Just FYI, there is a new feature in Wget2: -s/--verify-sig for
signature verification (Thanks to Neil Locketz).

$ src/wget2 -s https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.19.2.tar.lz
[0] Downloading 'https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.19.2.tar.lz' ...
Saving 'wget-1.19.2.tar.lz'
HTTP response 200 OK [https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.19.2.tar.lz]
Adding URL: https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.19.2.tar.lz.sig
[0] Downloading 'https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.19.2.tar.lz.sig'
Saving 'wget-1.19.2.tar.lz.sig'
HTTP response 200 OK [https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/wget/wget-1.19.2.tar.lz.s
Found 1 valid signature(s) in wget-1.19.2.tar.lz.sig

That feature definitely needs some fine-tuning. You are very welcome to
add comments / wishes / issues on the current development site https://
gitlab.com/gnuwget/wget2. Just open a new issue, e.g. for discussion.

Since Wget2 is based on libwget (same project), we might decide to move
parts of the verification code into the API to open it for any
application. That depends on your feedback.

With Best Regards, Tim
