Would you think it is a good idea to add a proxy exception list to org.apache.nutch.protocol.http.api.HttpBase and org.apache.nutch.protocol.http.HttpResponse? When scanning intra- and extranets in one go, it otherwise creates problems. E.g.
<value>intranet1.myintranet.ch www.myintranet.ch otherinternalserver.myintranet.ch </value>
<description>URL's and hosts that don't use the proxy (e.g. intranets)</description>
Does org.apache.nutch.protocol.httpclient.Http need a fix then as well?
If you think this is desirable, we will prepare a patch in JIRA.
