Package: general
Version: N/A; reported 2002-03-27
Severity: normal

Configuring http/ftp proxies for a host is too complicated. There are too many
places where the administrator (or user) needs to enter the proxy configuration.
At system install time, you are prompted for the proxy settings, but these
settings appear to only be used by apt. It would be nice if there were a
global proxy configuration, which every package would use.

Incidentally, here is a list of the packages that had to be configured by hand:

-- System Information
Debian Release: 3.0
Architecture: i386
Kernel: Linux godot 2.4.18-586tsc #2 Wed Mar 20 20:18:44 EST 2002 i586

global proxy configuration works via the http_proxy variable works with most 
programs, if not, please file seperate bugs against those packages.
