Thanks for the pointer to this newer version of apt-proxy. Very nice!
A couple of questions about using it. Since apt thinks all requests
are going to the same host, it doesn't parallelize any of them any
more. But I think it would improve things if it did. Do you know a
way to get apt to parallelize requests if the first component of the
pathnames are different? Or is there another work around for this?
Can I keep my sources.list as usual, but set apt's http proxy setting?
Second, when I do an "apt update", I can't tell anymore which
repository apt is currently using, because it only shows things like
Hit http://jdc.math.uwo.ca testing/main Packages
and I may have several repositories with a testing/main section.
Any idea how to get apt to show the first component of the pathname?
Hit http://jdc.math.uwo.ca/debian testing/main Packages
Hit http://jdc.math.uwo.ca/non-US testing/main Packages
Thanks for writing this very useful program!
