Re: sources.list confusion.

@mmaglis . . . Thanks for taking the initiative to find that.  I knew it existed and was going to suggest searching for it but thought better of it since I was not inclined to do so myself.   IIUC (that's certainly not a given), all the packages are signed so should be secure even without https.

And I think this should have it's own thread, hi-jacking an official announcement thread seems a bit rude.

Note that the apt-transport-https package is needed to take advantage of https sources.

this is only required in ascii. since apt >1.5 (beowulf) it's already included in apt, and that package is just transitional & can go away

Re: sources.list confusion.

tails uses only https iirc : https://tails.boum.org/contribute/how/mirror/
and their RR still fails, just like devuan : eg. https://dl.amnesia.boum.org/
that makes sense, otherwise devuan would have to share private keys with mirrors, which is of course out of the question.

about https://deb.debian.org , i think it only has one -sponsored- mirror  and that's why it works ok.

in all mirror cases i've seen so far, if you want to use apt through https, pick a mirror that supports it..
