Bug#219503: choose-mirror broken for manual entry
vesrion: cvs (0.21+)
If you run choose-mirror and try to "enter information manually", it
doesn't work. Used to work until recently.
The problem is in choose-mirror.c, where choose_country() ends with:
country = strdup(debconf->value);
debconf_set (debconf, DEBCONF_BASE "country", country);
Then in choose_mirror(), it does:
manual_entry = ! strcmp(debconf->value, "enter information manually");
but by this time, debconf->value has been set to "value set", so the
compare always fails.
