Fixing tests takes longer than expected. I'll continue tomorrow.

Any more on this?

     Hi everyone,
     Is there a plan for when upcoming GNU GRUB releases will happen?

     As far as I can tell, the last official release on was 2.00 on 28-Jun-2012, and the last beta
     on for the next version was
     2.02~beta2 on 24-Dec-2013 .  There are (give or take) 471 patches
     committed since that beta 18 months ago.

     In the mean time, nearly every Linux distro is shipping a package
     derived from the 2.02~beta2 release plus some number of patches,
     some from the upstream repo and some not, and it's cumbersome to rectify
     which ones aren't upstream vs which ones have been fixed upstream with
     /nearly/ the same patch, etc., with all the noise of so many patches
     since the release.

     I suspect this would be better for a lot of GRUB users if releases
     happened on a regular schedule, or if, relatively often (say once or
     twice per year), a release schedule that spans several weeks and
     organized some kind of alpha->beta->release progression were decided
     upon and followed.

I agree.
