Bug#508295: debootstrap: doesn't work with proxifiers (tsocks and proxychains)
One of my machines is behind the corporative proxy (both HTTP and SOCKSv5).
For applications that have not built-in proxy support I successfully use either
tsocks (SOCKS) or proxychanins proxifiers. They works well with 'bts' or
'reportbug', but debootstrap'ping always silently fail with 'Unable to retrieve Release'.
'strace -e trace=network' doesn't show any relevant info. Please investigate the
problem and suggest some solution or even a workaround would be appreciated.
