Subject: Dutch keyboard is uncommon in The Netherlands
Date: Fri, 30 Apr 2004 20:04:53 +0200
Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

When I install Debian from the new debian-installer images (on i386), my
keyboard settings default to 'Dutch'.

Dutch keyboards are only available from IBM and Compaq, as far as I
know, and even _they_ have been shipping US keyboards as default

The default keyboard for Dutch locales should probably be "US" or some
"US with dead keys" variant (accented characters are not very common in
Dutch, but they do exist)
