qgis (2.8.3+dfsg-1) has just been accepted into unstable which disables
the GRASS support in QGIS for the time being.

Based on the feedback in the related upstream issue [1] we can probably
expect the GRASS 7 changes from QGIS 2.12 to be backportsed to QGIS 2.8
LTR after the grass 7.0.1 packages become available.

It seems a good time to upload grass (7.0.1-1) to unstable as soon as
the build dependency issues are resolved, only the libgdal-grass library
is left as an rdep of grass and that package still needs to be updated
for gdal transition, updating both grass & libgdal-grass at the same
time is likely the way to go.
