Package: debian-installer
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.
