Re: easy task for Debian derivatives census code

Do you have more detailed logs of the failures you're seeing? If there's an issue with our setup that could also affect end-users in the wild it'd be nice to also get to the bottom of it as part of this. Or is the assumption that when these package files are downloaded with APT in the wild, APT already properly autoresumes and effectively hides our faulty setup?

Hi, here's attached my (very very simple patch).
Cannot test it live but should work... :)

Hi all,

For those of you who know Python, an easy task would be to migrate the
Debian derivatives census code from the urllib2 module to the requests
module and add resuming of downloads in the case of broken TCP
connections. Currently the patch generation code is failing to generate
a patch for the nvidia-graphics-drivers package in SteamOS as the Akamai
infrastructure always seems to close randomly connections mid-stream.
Switching to the requests module and adding autoresume would fix that.
