[TYPO3-typo3org] Downloading patches from forge with wget not possible

When you are working on the command line and want to directly download
patches from forge with wget, you'll run into a 403 Forbidden.

There seems to be a user-agent filter, which prevents wget from
accessing files on forge by comparing the user-agent string against the
term 'wget'.

IMHO this is a bug, since it complicates working on a command line when
testing and patching bugfixes.

Workaround is:
wget --user-agent="User-Agent: Trick the wg3t filter"

Please remove the filter. Thanks.
