Bug#262200: debian-installer: d-i downloads unneeded packages

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I'm doing a network install via modem.

I've discovered d-i downloading, amongst others, jfs and lvm udebs.

I won't be using either, so this is simply wasted time.

I suggest that downloading and installing optional udebs be deferred
until it's clear they are wanted.
