Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

[ For after the d-i alpha currently in preparation ]

Please consider demoting debconf-i18n from required to important.
debconf now only recommends it instead of having a strict dependency
and i18n support isn't required in minimal installations.

This should also allow demoting several perl modules:
libtext-iconv-perl, libtext-wrapi18n-perl, libtext-charwidth-perl (or
demoting those even to "optional" with the reasoning given in #758234)
