console-data 2002.12.04dbs-46.1 uploaded to delayed/3-day

A new version of the console-data package has been uploaded to the
delayed queue.

This version is aimed at cleaning out the package's bug log with bugs
which are easy to fix. Some of these bugs are more or less related to
Debian Installer (d-i) development. None of these are critical for d-i
though. A few will however make d-i a little bit more user friendly.

I have tested this upload all past week long. The most "invasive"
patch, aimed at alphabetical sorting of keymap names has been sorted
for 4 weeks now. This is a very common remark from d-i testers that
the keyboard maps list looks like a messy list.

I think about raising a fake RC bug in order to prevent it to enter testing.

In my opinion, this package has to live in sid so that important bugs
are found. Then letting it enter testing will be possible. Doing so
will mostly depend whether d-i is released at that time or not.

As some udebs are part of d-i initrd's, the final word on propagating
this package to testing should be from the d-i team, imho.

PS: the delayed queue in in people.debian.org/~tfheen/DELAYED/ for
people wanting to grab the udebs and test them on local d-i
builds. PLEASE DO THIS as soon as possible.
