As I see it, one problem of grub-extra is that it can't be compiled
separately, so user have to setup an environment to build it, which is
not straightforward. And as they have two revision system, this make
it difficult to track previous bug. For example, it's hard to tell
which revision of grub-extra can compile with which main stream
revision. And it's also the question of confidence, I don't see anyone
claim responsibility for grub-extra, it' more like a garbage dump to
me. It's hard to convince others to send patches on something that's
not actively maintained.
