My initial tests (with different VM configs, with 1.85 and 1.86) were quite OK so far, but I see code still needs refining. I don't think it's reasonable to push an updated (>> 1.85) grub-installer into r0 (meaning a migration to testing by wednesday). I had been struggling the whole day, trying to balance fixing a quite common use case, and resisting rushing a new version into testing at this point. I suggest we work towards having a suitable grub-installer for inclusion into r1 (which will possibly be released roughly 1 month after r0), for which we'll have more time than a couple of hours/days of testing. We'll be able to receive translation updates without last-minute added pressure, which should nicely appease Christian. ;-) Cc-ing debian-release@ to let them know we're skipping a (very late) grub-installer update. Mraw, KiBi.
