It's spread over a number of source packages; the list is long. We are
going to be importing the installer's strings into Rosetta in the near
future, though, so if you could be patient for a little longer then that
will probably be simplest.

If you really want the source packages, look through all the package
names in the Packages files in /dists/hoary/main/debian-installer/ and
do 'apt-get source' on a hoary system for all of them.

Cheers,
