Thanks for the heads up.

I think this would be nice, though I'm a bit unsure if we should do it
now, or after 1.5. The grub2 development is not so fast, so we should
not worry too much, OTOH we already replaced the init system, which is a
potential bootup breaker, maybe it's better to replace the bootloader in
the next release only.

There are multiple methods here, one way I can think of is (example):

- replace /dev/hda1 with
  UUID=92aaeb82-e07b-4b70-84fe-1f04ebb3250b in fstab
- same in /boot/grub/menu.lst

And of course this would affect new installations only, I don't really
think we need to touch existing installations.

Does this sound sane? If this is all, I think I can take care of that.

Yep, see the 1.5pre1 announce draft.

Once 1.5pre1 is out, I'm currently involved with finishing the boost14
WIP repo, which is a requirement to begin packaging libreoffice 3.4
