Hi Anikesh,

your proposal very well written with a good amount of details. I enjoyed
reading it, good work !

Daniel Stenberg already mentioned a few points and I guess he is
currently *the* expert for DoH client implementation.

There is not much to add from my side, just a few remarks.

This link is absolutely not relevant for Wget2:
We should write up something similar for Wget2 to give contributors an
easy start.

You mention two paths for the sources, wget2/libdns and wget2/dnslib.
Accidentally or did I miss something ?
You could also put the files into libwget/ - and skip building these
files in the using a 'conditional' from

So you also need a configure flag (e.g. --enable-dns-over-https
[default: on]).

Maybe you change the (protocol independent) '--dns-resolver' to a more
specific '--doh-resolver'.

With Best Regards, Tim
