    Question Escape "@" character in sources.list

    Hi all, https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubun...al/+bug/130289, while this bug talks about proxy settings, I am having problems when using https repo links in sources.list which have a username or password with the @ character. Is it possible to escape the @ character in sources.list?

    eg: deb https://user:xyz@123@host:port dists folder

    APT takes 123@host as the host instead of just host and xyz as password instead of xyz@123.

    Cheers,
    Siva
