I guess now is a good time to get back to you about this.  The version
in unstable is the one we have been testing in Debian Edu the last few
days, and it seem to work fine.  It contain a code move to put it at
the correct location in the installer, and a rename of the d-i hooks
to make sure the makes reflect their position in the d-i sequence to
make sure I do not put code in the wrong location again, and finally
fix one leftover code part failing to use a HTTP proxy.  I also added
some cosmetic changes to speed up the installation and get more fine
grained information from etcinsvk, but those are not very important.
This is the changelog:

debian-edu-install (0.673) unstable; urgency=low

  * Move upgrade calls from debian-edu-add_local_apt to pre-pkgsel.d,
    to make sure sources.list is updated before trying to upgrade.
  * Rename d-i hook scripts to use the name of their .d directory
    as file name to make it easier to predict when a script will execute,
    and avoid mistakes like the above in the future.
  * Make sure to activate etcinsvk as soon as possible, imediately after
    the base system is installed, to be able to track where changes
    come from.
  * Drop redundant 'aptitude update' from post-base-installer.  It is
    also executed in pre-pkginst.
  * Make sure http_proxy is set when calling aptitude and cfengine, to
    make sure both use a proxy when it is required.
