Bug#595783: debian-installer: en_DK locale missing

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I have customarily been using en_DK as my default locale because I want
my system to speak English to me but units, dates etc to be sane for
mainland Europe.  Now when I tried to install Debian Testing, I noticed
that en_DK is not available as an option during installation.

While I fully agree that en_DK is technically whimsical, it has been a
good locale to have; none of the en_XX options available in the
installer seem to offer the same features (A4 paper size,
year-month-date date format, metric units, etc) which are useful for a
large part of Europe in multinational organizations which use English as
their main language.

I installed using the netinst squeeze image from

-rw-r--r-- 1 era era 168742912 2010-02-18 00:19

Once the system was properly installed, the locales package (2.11.2-2)
did include en_DK, but it was not available during installation.

If this were a real .signature, it would suck less.  Well, maybe not.
