Public bug reported:

apt(-get) does not honor Proxy-Auto-Detect configuration in any way for
HTTPS URLs.

ex: vi /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99-proxy-auto-detect

Acquire::http:Proxy-Auto-Detect "/path/to/app";

"app" performs some actions and output the name of the proxy server
according to some internal rules, in the form
"http://proxy.domain.tld:1234/";

This works perfectly for all HTTP-like "deb http://example.com/ xxx"
URLs but is ignored for HTTPS URLs. Setting "Acquire::https:Proxy-Auto-
Detect" or even the legacy variable name "ProxyAutoDetect" (without
dashes) does not help either.

This is very annoying as the very purpose of this auto-detection is to
be network environment aware instead of using a hardcoded value for the
proxy setting.

This should be fixed. Thank you.
