Description Vratislav Podzimek 2014-07-17 04:38:14 EDT
Description of problem:
Quoting akozumpl's words:
"""DNF has basic proxy support but 1) it is not exposed in the API and 2) 
we haven't implemented any proxy authentication support yet."""

The dnf-based package payload code in the Anaconda installer requires full proxy support from DNF in order to replace the yum-based payload that is about to (hopefully) go away soon.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
dnf-0.5.4-1.fc21

Additional info:
to provide a notion of what Anaconda requires, here the documentation for the Anaconda's 'proxy' option:
> proxy=[protocol://][username[:password]@]host[:port]
>   Use the given proxy settings when performing an HTTP/HTTPS/FTP installation.
