> Dear Maintainer,
> When trying to install a debian stretch VM using virt-install and a preseed
> URL, I found out to my surprise that it downloads /d-i/jessie/./preseed.cfg

> --vcpus=1,maxvcpus=4 --memory=512,maxmemory=4096 --os-type=linux \
> --os-variant=generic --graphics none --console pty,target_type=serial \

> --location http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch/main/installer-amd64/ <http://ftp.nl.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch/main/installer-amd64/>
