So I can't find this thread, including this post, in the new list web
UI doing a search for the subject. I did send a "oh by the way" email
suggested to ping Richard Hughes since the policy likely affects
whatever is happening with GNOME Software to eventually do the major
version upgrades. But I can't find that email either.
Found mine, but not yours from today.
Anyway, I'm a +1.
I am a bit concerned about how GRUB gets stale on BIOS computers with
upgrades rather than new installations, since grub2-install isn't
called with any of the upgrade methods we've had.
That is fixed today in grub2-2.02-0.25.fc23. On UEFI, grubx64.efi is
replaced so it's fixed there just by updating the package. But on BIOS
it'll require a manual grub2-install.
