Control: tag -1 - d-i Control: severity -1 normal Hi, kwadronaut <firstname.lastname@example.org> (2017-03-11): > I used the alternative 'expert' installation, happens both remote or > with gui or text only.

The list on > https://www.debian.org/mirror/list doesn't make it easy for me to filter > out mirrors that offer stretch and are serving over https. https support is rather new, and I'm not sure how choose-mirror deals with it. The update I was about to upload yesterday failed to build anyway, so some investigation is in order. > Would it be possible to add a default one or list?

Bonus kudos for adding an onion option > as well and preseeding that too ;-) Some quick notes: - d-i syncs its mirror list from what's in mirror/mirror-masterlist.git so if you're not happy with the list of mirrors present there, submit new, non-infamous (whatever that means) mirrors. - preseeding is an entirely different concept in d-i: https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/amd64/apb.html.en KiBi.
