Bug#408297: should honor mirror/*/proxy when fetching keys for local repositories
Bug #348509 added support for local repositories, including fetching the
signing key for each repo.
It seems mirror/*/proxy isn't being honored when fetching the key, since the
environment variable http_proxy isn't being set before wget(1) is called.
Some background: we PXE boot d-i with preseeded configuration. For
installation, machines are numbered into a private network that does not
have direct access to our APT repository. Instead, a proxy is used during
installation. IIRC (it's been a couple of weeks), d-i was leaving this
repository commented out because it wouldn't pass verification without the
signing key. Once I renumbered our repository so it was reachable from the
installation network, this local repo was used by d-i.
Maybe this patch will help? I haven't had a chance to rebuild a d-i image
to verify, but unless something else in the install process is setting
http_proxy, it doesn't seem to be available to wget.
