Following patch fixes it for current sid distribution.

        case $MIRRORS in
-               base="$base apt-transport-https ca-certificates"
+               base="$base ca-certificates"

Can we please have a transitional package? I don't think it's particularly helpful to try and patch all debootstraps out there to install properly over https if we can avoid it by having an empty transitional package for now.

Kind regards and thanks
