Re: debian installer: allow unauthenticated local repository

My apologies, this works in Stretch. I need to updated my notion of what "reasonably modern" is--failed on squeeze, worked on stretch. (I run a test suite that includes all of our legacy debian versions.)

This didn't work. The resulting install had the local repository line in the sources.list, but, it was commented out per the comments in the example preseed.cfg which indicate repos without keys will be commented out.

Reasonably modern versions of apt have sources.list syntax for this.
Translating to preseeding syntax, that'd be something like this:

  d-i apt-setup/local0/repository string [trusted=yes] http://...

(Fill in whatever you'd normally have after "http" - the change is just
to insert "[trusted=yes]" before it.)
