You keep saying that, but with the first freeze starting in March, I wonder if it is realistic. Last I know is that there were still important regressions in functionality for grub2 when compared to grub. I would very much welcome an update on the status of grub2 and a detailed transition plan, including details on how upgrades from grub to grub2 will be handled. IMO this is important enough that this plan should be discussed on debian-devel, the change announced on debian-devel-announce and permission for the change should be asked from the release managers. > How about if we solve this in grub-installer by probing for amd64/qemu > and switching to GRUB 2 when found? No, I don't think we should code such complex exceptions in grub-installer. I would much prefer that it just be added in the errata with the suggestion to use grub2 as a workaround. It's easy enough: it can either be preseeded, or during an install just use <go back> to go to the main menu, change the debconf priority to "low" and restart grub-installer. Cheers, FJP
