Version: etch beta3
debian-installer naturally tries to connect to security.debian.org
but I have a few issues with the current implementation:
the connection timeout is too long
a user should be able to specify - beforehand in expert mode and
as a fallback in non-expert mode:
- either an alternative security.debian.org repository which is
accessible without additional proxy settings (yes there are
LANs where the net-admin allows port 21 out but not 80 out)
- or a ftp/http proxy for a 2nd try
ideally, the user would be able to specify local mirror or ftp-accessed
repos (apt-cacher, apt-proxy, ftp.<TLD>.debian.org, etc.) for main
and security network install/update in the installer.

apt-setup (1:0.17) unstable; urgency=low
[ Christian Perrier ]
* Fix error in French translation. Closes: #400715.
[ Frans Pop ]
* Make wget respect proxy servers defined for local sources. Based on a
patch suggested by John Morrissey, for which thanks. Closes: #408297.
* Use log-output for commands that produce output if run in the installer.
* Consistently use http protocol when setting up security archive (ftp
reguires a different mirror directory and is thus not easy to support).
* Reduce timeout for testing security mirrors to 30 seconds. As security.d.o
currently has 3 IP addresses listed, and these are tried consecutively, the
total timeout will be 1.5 minutes (was 6 minutes). Closes: #393033.
* apt-setup-verify: reset IFS to avoid problems with option processing.
