Please don't remove udebs too quickly. Even if ttf-dejavu-udeb isn't
listed as a build dependency of the debian-installer source package,
it's needed there during the build. This removal is therefore making
debian-installer FTBFS.

It would be great to check with debian-boot@ before handling such RM
requests (removal of udeb-producing packages). We would have had a
chance to switch to the “new” package.

Thanks for considering.
