Using curl to download packages within a launchpad build

Asked by ckti on 2019-04-13

Hello:
  I'm wondering if there is a way to use curl within launchpad to download sources that need to be built for a specific package. In snap this works and we can build our packages but we are trying to get a launchpad ppa built as well. I tried using the proxies that snap uses but to no avail. Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
Thank You

No, this isn't permitted. You need to include everything you need, either packaged as build-dependencies or directly in your source package.
