  wget in 12.04 does not support SNI

Status in wget package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in wget source package in Precise:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  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

  [Test Case]
  1- wget https://www.x.org
  2- Connection should succeed, instead of getting an error (ERROR: no certificate subject alternative name matches)

  [Regression Potential]
  Commit is simple. If broken, could possibly break SSL support in wget.

  Original report:

  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.
