Package: grub-pc
Version: 1.96+20090826-3
Severity: wishlist

Gentlemen, in /etc/default/grub can you
#include_if_exists /etc/default/grub.local
or something?

You see at the end of
I just wish to have

case $(hostname) in *1) GRUB_TIMEOUT=45;; *) GRUB_TIMEOUT=11;; esac
# Local Variables:
# compile-command: "update-grub && grub-install /dev/hda"
# End:

but on every single upgrade I have to go through the questions and then
paste those lines back on the new version, etc. A big hassle.

I want to keep up with your latest /etc/default/grub version, but also
have the final say at the end... all without triggering the whole
question session during install.

OK, maybe /etc/default/grub.local is not the exact best place.

Anyway, e.g., exim4 has /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.localmacros etc.
