Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

I tried to install debian behind an apt-proxy and the installations
hangs when fetching packages during installation (Errormsg on ALT-F4).
See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=388769 .

It seems that all Debian etch installations behind a sarge apt-proxy
fail because of apt-proxy bug 374405:
> Incompatible with full URL HTTP requests from recent apt versions
> http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=374405

Upgrading the apt-proxy from sarge to backports.org solved the 

IMHO it would be nice to have a hint / warning about sarge apt-proxy
when manually selecting a mirror. Otherwise many people may stumble over
