corp186cjwatson: I have a question about the install process, and shtylman said you'd be the one to ask22:05
corp186I'm reading the Frans Pop's paper on d-i, and it references Installer-Menu-Item tags in /var/lib/dpkg/status22:06
corp186but I don't see the tag in the status file of 9.10's amd64 iso22:07
corp186has the mechanism changed for how the packages are invoked?22:07
corp186I realized I was looking at the live cd's tree instead of the initrd tree, which I believe is where the install takes place22:16
corp186I've now found the tag in the initrd22:17

corp186cjwatson: I'm looking at the netboot initrd right now, and I see that the highest installer menu item value that isn't above 90000 is choose-mirror at 230022:23
