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".

IIRC my set theory of 50 years ago - what I'm looking for is the intersection of those sets.

While chasing down some related rabbit-trails I'm re-reading specific portions of the GRUB Manual, particularly "Appendix A How to obtain and build GRUB" <>

May be overkill. But I have a dedicated test-bed physically and electrically isolated from the world. The experience should be educational if nothing else ;/

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