Yes, I believe so.  FTP-team, please remove the chos source package from
unstable.  Total of 4 users listed in popcon; orphaned for over a year;
doesn't build under gcc-4.0.  Package is a bootloader, and we seem to
have a couple of other working bootloaders in the archive that can fill
this need.  The description compares it to lilo, but grub is probably
more featureful at this point.

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
