[Question #175218]: Web site improvement for systems with proxy settings


New question #175218 on Medibuntu:

Sitting behind a proxy, Ubuntu is not yet intelligently enough to stay with the environment of the user. In a nutshell, the suggest command to obtain the repositories "sudo apt-get ..." will change the environment to the root user. And then the command fails, in case the root user has not set proxies. 
My suggestion ('patch') is to use "sudo -E apt-get ..." instead. It is my conviction that the chances of the user being connected through a proxy is higher than that of the system administrator, when a proxy needs to be configured.
