Background: I need to use a really large initrd for x86_64 (Linux 3.4.47),
and I'm near the limit, so I'm studying grub-core/loader/i386/linux.c to
find out the whys and wherefores of the GRUB 2.00 size limit.

GRUB 2.00 is way too old.

But as far as I know grub-2.00 is the last "stable" release. There is the more current grub-2.02~beta2 that was released over a year ago, but some people prefer releases that upstream has designated as stable.

Has grub gone to a policy of git snapshots only and forgone stable releases?
