Hi Shirish,

I've added reportbug to the task list "forcd1", which is the list of
packages that are added for all media types larger than the netinst. I
know you've asked for the netinst too, but I really don't think it
fits there sensibly. The netinst is meant to give *directly* only a
minimal system with sufficient tools to get a system installed and
running. Anything more than that depends on having network
connectivity - the clue is in the name!

If anybody is really stuck for network connectivity at installation
time, they should be using a better (i.e. more complete) installation

I've applied this change in git, so all our stretch builds will pick
up on it immediately. The bug will close fully when I do the next
upload of the debian-cd package, due soon so it gets included in the
stretch release.
