Bug#1006800: debian-installer: kernel mismatch for bookworm and sid installer. New release needed?

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20210731+deb11u2
Severity: normal

Dear maintainer(s) of debian-installer,

I've been working on reproducible live ISO images for some time now [1] and the
images can be generated in a reproducible manner.
As the next step, I want to test the functionality of the live ISO images and
recently I started working with Philip Hands to get them being tested in

I have noticed that the officially released version debian-installer [2][3]
will not work for bookworm and sid, because the kernel version in the debian-
installer does not match the current kernel version. You recently fixed this in
git [4].

Could you release a new version of debian-installer for bookworm and sid?
Or do you recommend a different (release) strategy?
I'm aware of the daily images [5], but they are currently not being
snapshotted, which makes it impossible to reproduce an image after the older
images have been removed from [5].

With kind regards,
Roland Clobus
