Sorry, but I don't understand this  at all. You seem to be saying that we will still need kbd-chooser in D-I and at the same time that the console-setup udebs replace it... Could you explain again what will be used to select a keymap in the installer when we switch to console-setup? Does console-setup provide something that replaces kbd-chooser? I don't think we should make any changes before this is clear. If we make a switch to console-setup, we should IMO make it for both the installer itself and for the installed system, and also for all languages. Using both will only create a maintenance and troubleshooting nightmare. To be honest, I'm less worried about translation issues. Getting that working should be relatively easy once we have the technical part implemented. Cheers, FJP  Talking about "first stage" does not really make any sense anymore. The whole installation now takes place before the reboot: there is no longer a "second stage" with base-config. It _does_ make sense to distinguish between things that happen in the D-I environment and in the /target chroot.
