The plan is to transition in Etch from console-tools and console-data, which are unmaintained upstream, to kbd. This page is for tracking issues around this transition, which mostly affect debian-installer.

The harder bits:

A fuller wishlist of what I'd like to do is at ; the above console->kbd transition should be implemented ASAP to help release planning.

Transitional console-*, kbd packages should be prepared in experimental and d-i builds and sarge upgrades tested before releasing to sid.
