Be careful to distinguish "Grub2", the code that runs at boot time, from
the array of shell scripts, etc., that installs Grub2 on a disk and
writes the grub.cfg that controls its behavior at boot time.

The first item is likely to be what people think of when you say
"Grub".  The second item is likely to be what people are using when they
say "a Grub installation".

Probably every distribution that includes Grub does some alteration and
customization of "".
