Hey Dennis, nice to see you again :)

I like your branch and I think its indeed pretty anoying that the data downloader does not use the native apt proxy setup. I think we could do even better by using the apt acquire system to download the file(s). I outlined this here: lp:~mvo/update-notifier/use-apt-helper. This will also make sure we support e.g. the auto proxy discovery.

What do you think? Could you give the alternative implemenation a testrun and let me know if it honors the proxy for you?
