FS#83 - yypkg-1.4.0.exe fails behind firewall

yypkg-1.4.0.exe fails behind firewall and is unable to download package_list.el.tar.xz, even with HTTP_PROXY/HTTPS_PROXY set in environment and proxy properly configured in Windows.

This task does not depend on any other tasks.

There is unfortunately no support for proxies currently and it's too large to fit in the upcoming 1.5 release.

I'm thinking of a work-around in 1.5: download files through another software (lftp, wget, anything) and use that as a local mirror. This is mostly documentation but there is probably a small amount of code to change too for it to work on Windows (so that paths such as file://C:/foo/bar are not rejected).

Proxy support is something that will definitely be in 1.6 which should be release in 3 or 4 months roughly (that and package signing but package signing will slip to 1.7 rather than delay the 1.6 release).

I've added a work-around on the website (currently visible at ). Basically it offloads the downloading of the files to wget (or another tool) and then the installer uses a file:// path to read directly from disk.
