I mentioned "current" upstream naming. According to upstream,
presently grub2 aka grub 1.9x == grub and grub 0.97 == grub-legacy . I
have also submittted a grub-legacy PKGBUILD to Allan for inclusion in
official repo (grub itself may be removed from core repo, who knows).
The source tarball name won't change upstream as it was generated
years back, shortly before grub became grub-legacy.
//offnote: I simply bumped this thread since its strange that no one
replied to this mail for 4 days.
