Package: cryptsetup-initramfs
Version: 2.3.4-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

while I was installing bullseye for testing purposes via GRML with
debootstrap I encountered the problem that cryptsetup-initramfs is
no longer a dependencie of cryptsetup. This led to the problem that
my encrypted LVM on LUKS partition did not get unlocked while

I used the "--include" option for debootstrap to install cryptsetup.
This will only install dependencies of included packages and this is
why cryptsetup-initramfs didn't get installed.

I expected it to work like in the last debian releases.

Could this be changed back or is there a reason for this change?

Regards, Ben
