There is no official place to find it.
Neither production of basedebs.tgz nor the placement of this in the
archive is the responsibility of the boot-floppies.
The fact is this is a serious bug against debootstrap this this isn't
produced, and a serious bug against ftp.debian.org that there isn't a
location for it once it is produced.

Actually, the only time it is ever required is when you only have a
floppy drive, no CD, no network. What other case are you thinking of?
