Re: Should we use Burg insted of Grub?


Hi Andre,

I know there had been some discussion regarding Burg previously. In fact, I
believe there were blueprints filed and everything. However, due to a
multitude of issues, we've decided against it—at least for Luna.

I'd be interested in seeing it considered for L+1, though!
