Hi Jens,

quite a nice service, thank you for all that work. It's awesome !

We are aware of codespell but so far only use it as a CI check for
Wget2[1]. We didn't bother to backport the script yet to Wget 1.x.
See [2] and [3].

Indeed we plan for a new release - so you put some pressure on us to
correct all those misspellings now :-)

We will not correct words in "ChangeLog", as this is automatically
generated from git commit messages. And we can't change git commit
messages as this would destroy history (blockchain, you know ;-)).

There is also m4/po.m4 that we won't change, as it is from gettext.

Regards, Tim
