Bug Description

The proxy for the launchpad builders denies HEAD requests over HTTP while allowing them over HTTPS -- this has caused build failures for us when building packages which rely on tests which perform HTTP HEAD requests prior to fetching resources.

Mattermost discussion:

Relevant section per @cjwatson:

        # Deny all except certain HTTP methods.
          http_access: deny

It would be very helpful for us if HEAD requests were allowed
