I’m inclined to make this timeout a Pybombs configuration variable that
defaults to 10. I think for most people that is a reasonable timeout
value, but this would make it very easy for it to be bumped up in
special circumstances such as yours. Does this sound reasonable to
There seems to be a 10 second timeout when pybombs fetches packages
using wget. This is way too short when working behind a proxy.
I have no clue how proxies are supposed to work. The one I am sitting
behind downloads the package and scans it for viruses and during that
time the connection appears to hang from wget point of view. With a
large package like Ice, 10 seconds are not sufficient. I don’t know
what a proper timeout would be, but maybe this is why the default
timeout is so long.
