Bug#1003560: debian-edu-config: stop modifying /etc/apt/apt.conf

Package: debian-edu-config
Severity: important
Version: 2.12.15

The update-proxy-from-wpad script modifies /etc/apt/apt.conf. This is suboptimal because /etc/apt/apt.conf overrides all other settings in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/**.

When combining Debian Edu with FAI, it might be useful to let FAI override the http_proxy variables (e.g. we use squid-deb-proxy with FAI). So, it would be good to let update-proxy-from-wpad not tweak /etc/apt/apt.conf, but /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/03debian-edu-proxy instead.

FAI provides the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy file which IMHO should superceded debian-edu-config's configuration.

This bug is relevant for people who use debian-edu-fai (not yet uploaded, but soon) with Debian Edu 11 or later.

As debian-edu-fai is already in use with Debian Edu 11, it would be cool to provide a fix for this also as a stable-pu.
