Bug#633678: edd_id missing from daily initrd images

Package: debian-installer


I'm unable to reinstall wheezy from usb / iso on my amd64 machine.  After sufficient wrestling to create a symlink for wheezy to appear "stable" to appease anna-install (which seemed to look for stable anyway... there's a FIXME in there somewhere that seems suspect), I was blocked for a bit on an error after the (no-op) "partitioning" step in which the code wants to run edd_id.  

/lib/udev/edd_id is missing from the daily initrd images on d-i:

anotherengine:~/Downloads% curl http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/amd64/daily/hd-media/initrd.gz | gunzip -c | cpio -i -t | grep _id
  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
                                 Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
 57 5414k   57 3102k    0     0   611k      0  0:00:08  0:00:05  0:00:03  636k


but is mentioned in rules.d:

anotherengine:~/Downloads% mkdir xy && cd xy && curl http://d-i.debian.org/daily-images/amd64/daily/cdrom/initrd.gz | gunzip -c | cpio -i -d
anotherengine:~/Downloads/xy% grep -r edd_id *


I was able to find edd_id in the squeeze initrd.gz image at http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/main/installer-amd64/current/images/hd-media/ , put it in place, and get past that particular error, though I have yet to succeed in un-bricking my system.

Sorry for the poor format of this bug report.  I think it's correct (certainly that the program is not there, certainly that some code attempts to invoke it), but I don't know whose fault it is that the program is missing.
