I found another task where I want to contribute, the issue with 45037.
For what I understand, and read in the mailling list, the problem occur in
ftp_loop_internal -> remove_link.

But what I don't understand, is why each time he try to remove
the symbolic link. What is the purpose of this statement, in overall
context of code.

That was here, because that was a feature, and now a bug, because some
others statements was removed ?

If for example I have a symbolic link README in local, and try to download
another file, with the
same name README remotely, with -O foo, normally, my symbolic link README
should not be modified.

But now if I pass -O README, the symbolic link will be removed because it's
a redirection ?
so It's not possible to just renamed it ?

Sorry if my questions are silly, but I'am starting in the code of wget, and
my knowledge are weak.

Thank you
