Default Natty SRU (V3): UBUNTU: Add grub-efi as a recommended bootloader for server and generic

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

<cjwatson> tgardner: grub-efi should definitely never be first
<cjwatson> and "forces removal due to missing recommends" is nonsense
an unsatisfied recommends should not force removing a package
also, the real packages involved are grub-efi-amd64 and grub-efi-ia32
- grub-efi is a metapackage

good grief, that apt-get output is incredibly weird
<cjwatson> tgardner: in my book, that's an apt bug and you should give
mvo a task for it - adding non-first grub-efi-amd64 | grub-efi-ia32
Recommends won't hurt though
<tgardner> cjwatson, well, should I reference the meta package, or the
underlying package (since they are somewhat arch dependent, right?)

<cjwatson> underlying
it doesn't matter if you recommend something that's missing
especially when it's one of several alternatives
<tgardner> cjwatson, ok, can do
<cjwatson> referring to the metapackage: consider the case where
somebody has grub-efi-amd64 installed but not grub-efi

<tgardner> makes sense
<cjwatson> I still think it's not really your problem, but fixing apt's
resolver in a stable release probably isn't happenng
