Re: Bug#992692: general: Use https for {deb,security}.debian.org by default

* Michael Stone <mstone@debian.org> [2021-09-08 19:12]:
Why not simply automate setting it at install time using preseed? I'm honestly not sure who the target audience for auto-apt-proxy is--apparently someone who has an infrastructure including a proxy, possibly the ability to set dns records, etc., but can't change defaults at install time or via some sort of runtime configuration management?
The same reason you might want to deploy WPAD instead of preconfiguring
proxy settings in web browsers: flexibility. For example, we use
auto-apt-proxy for laptops which roam between different networks.
It's simple to configure, has virtually no maintenance overhead and
degrades gracefully.
