Details (job description, contact ...):

We want a co-maintainer for GRUB legacy.

GRUB legacy is the GRUB currently used. In other words, the version number is 0.9x. Besides this one, we develop the next generation of GRUB called GRUB 2 from scratch. So the GRUB legacy is in maintenance mode, that is, the source code is only fixed but not extended  in principle.

However, because GRUB is used quite widely, there are many pending bugs reports on the Bug Tracker and the mailing list, and there will be all the time. So we need to maintain GRUB legacy seriously, but this wastes our time too much.

Therefore, we need one who helps us to maintain GRUB legacy, so that we can use more of our time for developing GRUB 2. If you are interested in this work, send e-mail to <> and subscribe to it.

NOTE: You need to prove that you can maintain GRUB legacy, before we approve you as a co-maintainer. Try to fix some of the bugs reported through the Bug Tracker or the mailing list.
