Debian Installer Bookworm Alpha 1 release

September 22nd, 2022

The Debian Installer team is pleased to announce the first alpha release of the installer for Debian 12 Bookworm.

A number of changes were submitted by Debian Janitor and merged into the many components that the installer is assembled out of, and they're not documented individually since they're usually about catching up with debhelper and other build-time best practices.

Special thanks to first-time contributors to the main debian-installer source package:
