Why?  Modules from grub-extras can be compiled in-tree just as fine.

I've been looking into migrating grub-extras to Bazaar, but haven't found
the time.  Would it help if I do this?

I think you're presenting the problem in a way that can't have any possible

  - I made an open offer to anyone who would want to maintain LUA in
    grub-extras.  You weren't interested.

  - Now you say that you made a fork of GRUB because LUA in grub-extras
    isn't being properly maintained.

I'm afraid I can't help you there.  If you have other reasons for this, feel
free to explain them, and maybe we can find a solution.
