[xml/sgml-pkgs] Bug#266430: libxml2-utils: xmllint can't use a proxy for --dtdvalid URL

Package: libxml2-utils
Version: 2.6.11-3
Severity: wishlist


My computer is behind a web proxy and a firewall and I can't tell
xmllint to use the proxy. xmllint tries (and fails) a direct connection
when I use --dtdvalid http://website/file.dtd.

It would be great if xmllint could use $http_proxy (like wget, lynx and
some other programs) to know if a proxy should be used.

A workaround is to fetch the DTD using wget and use a local URL in
xmllint (--dtdvalid file.dtd).
