Bug#819300: should provide default HTTPS mirrors for non-Debian releases too

Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.80
Severity: wishlist


currently debootstrap only knows about an HTTPS mirror for Debian, but not e.g. for Ubuntu.
This can have funny results when trying to bootstrap an Ubuntu release w/o having ubuntu-archive-keyring installed:

% sudo debootstrap xenial /tmp/xenial
I: Keyring file not available at /usr/share/keyrings/ubuntu-archive-keyring.gpg; switching to https mirror https://mirrors.kernel.org/debian
I: Retrieving Release 
E: Failed getting release file https://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/dists/xenial/Release

Explicitly setting the mirror helps. But I think the Ubuntu scripts should not only override DEF_MIRROR but also DEF_HTTPS_MIRROR.
