GSoC18: adding support for SOCKS5
Dear Mentors, I am interested in taking part in the Wget2 GSoC this year while I'm not sure whether I could propose my own idea.
During the days when I'm using Wget2/Wget, I found that It's hard to use a SOCKS5 proxy on it. Everyone told me to change the SOCKS5 traffic to HTTP traffic and use the converted HTTP proxy instead, which is tedious. So I'm thinking about adding SOCKS5 proxy for Wget2 this summer. I believe that lots of people would benefit from this since SOCKS5 is a popular proxy protocol.
I don't know if this is a qualified GSoC idea. If it's okay, I'd love to dig it deeper and read more RFCs about it. Thanks for your help!
