I noticed that brdesktop-artwork-grub Pre-Depends from grub. I
admit I do not see a reason for a *Pre*-Depends instead of a
Depends. As I have understand you are not supposed to use a
Pre-Depends except if it is really necessary that the other
package has to be configured before your package is installed.
I do not see any sign that this is the case. This actually
qualifies for a bug report against the package - but I'm just
asking in case I missed something.
The thing is that for the moment the blends tools do not support
Pre-Depends. But besides the case above I think it should support
it in case it might be really necessary at some point in time.
So I'll implement it for the next version anyway - but please
verify whether it is needed for brdesktop-artwork-grub.
