This comes up when I look for mac keymaps.sh in the boot-floppies source:
case "$arch" in
        export keymaps="atari/atari-de.kmap.gz
        export keymaps="amiga/amiga-de.kmap.gz
# Broken in console-data see bts#50588

Looks more like its hardcoded, but I did not see yet how/where the installer
offers you six keymaps...

We can add them in. If you could fix the broken keymap (see bug), might have
them all? Or should we just add some of them, the working ones?
This should move to debian-boot...
