I added a patch that

* only add -t if WGET_RETRIES is set
* only add -T if WGET_TIMEOUT is set
* only add -N if WGET_TIMESTAMPING is set and is not equal "no". This is
a new an undocumented "feature".

Also moved the config file to /etc/fetch-crl/ as requested.

I have an apk that is scheduled for 1.8.1 here:

and for 1.9.x here:

since there are 2 differnt build environments both would need to be
tested. Could you please help me with that?

Thanks alot!

btw... im not sure if we maybe should just let the script be unpacthed
and just add GNU wget as a depend. what do you think?
