I've just tested the package from -proposed and it fixed a problem with
a GitHub https download for me.
It was failing before with SSL connection establishment error and after
finding a hint for lack of SNI support in a standard 12.04's wget
version by googling, I've found this very bug record and I'm glad to
confirm it works [for me].

wget in 12.04 does not support SNI
Status in wget package in Ubuntu:
Status in wget source package in Precise:
wget in Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't have support for TLS Server Name Indication, which makes it incompatible with certain sites, includes sites that use the Let's Encrypt Authority.
The updated package fixes the issue with a backported patch from wget
1- wget https://www.x.org
2- Connection should succeed, instead of getting an error (ERROR: no certificate subject alternative name matches)
Commit is simple. If broken, could possibly break SSL support in wget.
Let's Encrypt Authority should be added to CA-certificates.
https://www.X.org is now using a cert from this CA, wget fails when
connecting to X.org.
