Severity: wishlist
Owner: Robert Millan <rmh.debian.bts@aybabtu.com>

* Package name    : multiboot
  Version         : 0.6.96

* URL             : http://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/grub/

  Description     : The Multiboot specification

 This specification, created in 1995, describes a method of loading various
 multiboot kernels using a single compliant boot loader (such as GNU GRUB)
 on i386-based computers.
 It is used by a variety of kernel images, such as the Hurd, Xen, or NetBSD
 An example implementation of a Multiboot kernel is provided.
 For an example implementation of a Multiboot loader, check GRUB Legacy
 (grub-legacy package), or GRUB 2 (grub-pc package, and others).

Note: a previous version of this manual is already in Debian, as part of
GRUB Legacy package.  However since GRUB Legacy is now obsolete, upstream
provides new versions of Multiboot in a separate package.
