The de-latin1-nodeadkeys keymap, which we offer as only choice for German does indeed chainload de-latin1. So, the udeb has to provide that file. On the other hand, Noèl Köthe, in another report, mentioned he was unable to type his name properly because of the lack of dead keys. In that other bug report, I asked him whether the German users would be gurted if the only choice we offer for German is de-latin1 and not de-latin1-nodeadkeys. I'll try to get opinions from the German Cabal about this, at Debconf. Bernhard (who originally sent this bug report) what would be your feeling about D-I offering "de-latin1" behind the "German" choice of keyboard? As you indeed wanted to pressed that value, I assume this is because you prefer that keymap over de-latin1-nodeadkeys? Please note that this bug report made me put my console-data maintainer hat on and discover that the udeb indeed embarks several keymaps, which we don't offer as choices and are *not* included by other keymaps. In short, useless stuff. I'll report a separate bug against console-data for this.
