Just to be clear I was just giving my related experience and I'm not
advocating that this use grub, that makes no difference to me
whatsoever and I'm certainly not going to advocate treating this any
differently than we treat anything else with respect to QA and
testing. I'm reluctant to use this for F14 media and don't think that
is necessary. The reason EMEA is without media for F14 isn't related
to this effort and the normal media can be purchased when things get
sorted out there.
