Bug#771699: Provide A Preseed Option For Ignoring The Valid-Until Field of InRelease Files

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist
Tags: d-i

Dear maintainers,

Please provide a method to allow the installer to ignore the 'Valid-Until' field for repositories during install. Currently, one can tell Apt/Aptitude directly to do this via:

        # apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until="false" update
        # apt-get upgrade

But there is no way to preseed this or to tell the installer only (not the target image) to do this.

The option could be something similar to the "allow unauthenticated packages" preseed option:

        d-i debian-installer/allow_unauthenticated boolean true

So, perhaps something like this:

        d-i debian-installer/ignore_valid_until boolean true
