Bug#883802: debian-installer-netboot-images: Duplicate initrd.gz (40 MB)

Package: debian-installer-netboot-images
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i

Debian Install System Team,

Looking at Debian Installer Buster Alpha 2 netinst:

$ ls -l install.amd/*/initrd.gz
-r--r--r-- 2 root root 40077490 Dec  5 09:33 install.amd/gtk/initrd.gz
-r--r--r-- 2 root root 40077490 Dec  5 09:33 install.amd/xen/initrd.gz

$ md5sum install.amd/*/initrd.gz
a369d078180551a2e53cab0c39e4a6c4  install.amd/gtk/initrd.gz
a369d078180551a2e53cab0c39e4a6c4  install.amd/xen/initrd.gz

netinst images are roughly 300 MB, so each of these is > 10%.

Should one of these be replaced with a symlink?

By the way, these files are also duplicated in pre-Buster and
non-netinst images.

Thank you!
