grub2 (1.98-1ubuntu7) lucid-proposed; urgency=low

  * Update harmfully incorrect German translation of menu legend, which
    omitted mention of pressing Ctrl-x to boot (LP: #580178).
  * Rearrange postinst install_devices logic so that preparatory code is run
    only once and the while loop only encloses actual asking of questions,
    and so that the question being asked is always marked for redisplay when
    going round the while loop again (LP: #580408).
  * Only offer partitions containing /, /boot, or /boot/grub for
    grub-install; installing to other partitions may have harmful effects
    such as making Windows unbootable, and installing GRUB to every single
    partition is likely to result in confusion anyway (LP: #576724).
