Bug#715403: Unreliable wget test

Package: debian-edu-install
Version: 1.715
Severity: important


In order to add the debian-edu repositories to the APT sources, there is
a useless and painful wget test during the debian-edu-profile step.

Since there is no way to declare an HTTP proxy setup, this test is doom
to fail in hostile environment (e.g. most of French high schools), and
there is no way to declare “yes, I really know what I’m doing, stop
bugging me, just add the repositories right now”. Then, since the
debian-edu repositories are not added, the installation will fail a lot
later due to missing packages.

Furthermore, since the repositories will be tested anyway a little later
(during the package manager setup step), this early test is not really
useful. Please note that the mirror/http_proxy will be honored at this
further step, allowing anyone behind a proxy to actually install tjener
(and even use an apt-cacher-ng like setup if needed…).

Thanks in advance for dropping this test (or providing a way to bypass
