automatic detector of common APT proxy settings

auto-apt-proxy installs itself as an APT proxy autodetector, and detects common setups by checking localhost and the network default gateway for well-known APT proxies such as apt-cacher-ng.

This package is most useful for development environments, and will Do The Right Thing for:

  * build chroots, with a proxy running on the host system.
  * docker/lxc containers, with a proxy running on the host system.
  * Virtual machines with NAT networking, with a proxy running on the host
  * system.
  * any other system, with a proxy running on its default gateway.

The following APT proxy servers are supported and automatically detected:

  * apt-cacher-ng
  * approx
  * apt-cacher

This package has a minimal set of dependencies in order to minimize the influence on systems where it is installed.

For corporate desktop/server deployments, where the APT proxy can be located at any arbitrary host, you should probably try the `squid-deb-proxy-client` package instead.
