I disagree here. I think requesting a backport is a valid wishlist request to
a maintainer. In case of grub2 the point is different as it is already on
bpo, so the request should got to the last uploader... Oh that is Robert
Millan <email@example.com>, isn't he a grub2 maintainer? If yes I would
think an update request for the bts is also valid.
