After having attempted an SRU request for a small patch to grub-pc for 10.04 LTS that fixes an issue that has left many people with unbootable servers nothing has been done for some time. The patch went through d-i into Maverick and only modifies a small amount of a single *.c file over a year ago. I updated the ticket with a debdiff of the patch and rebuilt the current grub-pc package plus the patch in a PPA and changed the ticket description to be the SRU request format subscribed the "sru" and "sponsors" teams but then nothing happened.

Is there some policy against updating grub-pc in LTS that I don't know about?

I guess you ask this question in the wrong place... I guess best would be to use IRC. – Michael K Nov 15 '11 at 8:06

It's a question of time, not policy. Sorry for not having dealt with this yet. I've opened a bug target in an effort not to forget again.
