Please describe the problem.

i try to load add a URL to git (for later download) which is behind a CDN.

git-annex addurl

it tells me:

addurl (downloading ...) Configuration does not allow accessing failed git-annex: addurl: 1 failed

looking around, I find that curl itself does also not load the file. wget does out-of-the-box hint: curl -L "--location" seems to work, as this follows the http 30x

--> how to fix this ?

What steps will reproduce the problem?

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

debian stretch, x64. git-annex as out-of-box

$ apt-show-versions | grep git-annex

git-annex:amd64/stretch 6.20170101-1+deb9u2 uptodate

Please provide any additional information below.

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
