Hi,

on your DL-Site (download.novell.com) you offer an dead link (Download
Manager Links) Therefore you describe how to download a file via wget. But
this describtion is useless because you have to login before you can
download. (Or you have to use the links offered at the dead place.)

I would preferred a ability to DL the big files in the background via wget
(or curl)

An other point seems the usage of md5 as checksum. MD5 is no longer secure
and maybe you would like e.g. sha256sum insteed of md5sum.

Best wishes for 2016

Bernd

the feedback.
