Package: grub-common
Version: 1.96+20090725-1
Severity: normal

  some scripts provided by grub-common may use os-prober. 
As a consequence, the grub-common package should "Recommends" (or at least
"Suggests") the os-prober package. It is a matter of packaging.
Please consider adding such a (weak) dependency.
