These nonProxyHosts can be retrieved with the settings.getActiveProxy().getNonProxyHosts();
This returns a String containing a (usually?)comma-separated list of nonProxyHosts.
If the jira URL matches one of these hosts, it should not use any proxy of course .
I haven't found a nonProxyHosts concept in commons-httpclient, so it should be checked in the determineProxy Method of AbstractJiraDownloader.
This is quickly fixed and would be very useful
Thanks in advance
