QGIS GRASS plugin & GRASS 7
Because the QGIS GRASS plugin (qgis-plugin-grass) doesn't support GRASS
7, and the GRASS 7 support from QGIS 2.10 & 2.12 likely won't get
backported to QGIS 2.8 LTR, we'll have to disable the QGIS GRASS plugin
before we can move GRASS 7 out of experimental.
This issue has long a painfull history because part of the QGIS & GRASS
userbase is not well servered by disabling the plugin, another is not
without GRASS 7. For backgrounds see the following posts and referenced

unstable and disabled qgis-plugin-grass to allow it to build in unstable
now and in preparation of the transition to grass 7.0.1 in the near future.
