[Freedombox-discuss] Apt mirror from Debian as a Tor hidden service

It would be nice if APT would use Tor to fetch packages automatically on
the Freedombox, and I just discovered
<URL: http://richardhartmann.de/blog/posts/2015/08/24-Tor-enabled_Debian_mirror/ >
reporting on the progress for this.  There is now an experimental hidden
Tor service to download packages from the Debian archive.

I send the blog author a proposal to create a new apt transport method
in /usr/lib/apt/methods/ to make it easier to ensure transport via Tor,
but I have not tested it myself.

Happy hacking
