Bug#847056: debian-installer: Installer can't find "en_DK.utf-8" locale

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n d-i

Hello d-i, et al

I live in Denmark, but almost always set up servers in english, to make
collaboration easier.

This means the en_DK.utf-8 locale is my preferred choice.

However, I can no longer (I believe it broke in jessie, perhaps before) select
it in the installer.

I select "English", then "Europe" then "Copenhagen", and I am told that there
is no locale available for my combination of choices. This is, of course,

I then have to either fix up the system later, go through expert install, or
increase debconf priority (a trick I just learned today).

Why the bug happens, I'm not quite sure, but I have a suspicion. Denmark is one
of the few countries in the world, where the language and country codes do not
align (language: "da", country: "dk"). Perhaps the installer is checking the
wrong one of these?

Let me know how I can help!
