Hi Skip,

nice idea. I've already changed this in the sources.

This is also what FAI is using in the class FAISERVER.

There's already the variable APTPROXY in FAI. Maybe it needs more documentation.

I'm not sure if I want to add the FAI project repository by default, I
need to think on this topic for some more time.

I cannot find a 02fai file. Which file do you mean?
