Re: Bug#1007838: d-i.debian.org: Installer iSCSI does not work in Debian 11

Control: reassign -1 open-iscsi 2.1.3-5
Control: affects -1 debian-installer
Control: tag -1 d-i


Reports against d-i.debian.org are usually about our infrastructure and
tooling, you could have filed the report against debian-installer
instead, which makes for a better default package. :)

That's not an issue about installation images (which would be for
debian-cd), but about a component that's linked against a library that's
not available in the installer's context.

Hence the reassigning above. I might look into it shortly, but I need to
get (old)stable point release preps squared away first.

Would you be happy to test a tweaked mini.iso that I'd build for you to
