I have set up a repository on Github where you can view progress within
the project: https://github.com/jy987321/Wget/

Whenever I will obtain a useful peace of code, I will submit a patch for
it to the main repository (to avoid merge conflicts in the future).

Otherwise I will try to rebase my changes onto current state of Wget, so
expect force pushes in master-hubert branch.
