Well we do have a public git repo that consists of grub1 + our changes.
Our grub package consists of the last upstream grub1 source + all our
patches from our git repo on top of it.  I think Peter has been working
with other distros that are still on grub1.

In theory yes, that's how it's supposed to go.  In practice, with grub,
it doesn't work that way.  From what I gather they just aren't
interested in working on the things we need at this point in grub2's
