Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

The grub2 package which we have is 1.95+20070604-1ubuntu1 while in debian the latest version is 1.95+20071004-2

Can something be done about it for Hardy perhaps?

The patch looks good, but can you check with Jeff Bailey <email address hidden> if we still have to carry over the ubuntu change (disabling of the stack protector)?
Please resubscribe u-u-s when you have a confirmation (or otherwise).

In which case, we can just sync the package.

For the sync request:
The only Ubuntu change was the debian/patches/10_disable-stack-protector.patch which is no longer needed.
