GRUB upstream and distros cooperation

The presentation will discuss current state of GRUB upstream development and cooperation with distributions.

Some time ago the GRUB maintainership has changed to streamline project maintenance. Right now maintainers try to improve various developments aspects including patch review process and cooperation with distros. So, they would like to highlight current challenges and know better what are the current distro requirements in regards to GRUB.

The presentation will show GRUB maintainers point of view in regards to cooperation. It will also discuss the issues related to the patches in distros which have never been usptreamd. The GRUB maintainers have some solution proposals for the problem which will be presented too. However, they also expect that distro maintainers will express their opinions during Q&A session.
