Note the test exposure of grub in unstable is minimal, since it's not used
by D-I and therefore only affects people who run grub-install manually.
Given the above, and that bugs like #492213, #451701 and #491076 make
grub 0.97-41 unfit for release, I'd recommend that this 10 day delay is
reconsidered, since we're unlikely to catch any potential trouble that
affects new installs in that period, and this only means less time for
(I can understand, however, if you are concerned about the changes other
than these bugfixes, but AFAICS they're pretty straightforwarded).
The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
