Yes, there is no active developer to take care of them. I have however

think is the correct expression). It has bugs (lack of updates rather),
sure. I did consider taking over support myself, but with general
interest being quite low, sofar I have just used the proposed config,
and fixed the rest manually when I install.

Then, it is difficult to tell newcomers for which legacy grub fails to try
lilo instead. When this happens, in the forums we tell them to install
ubuntu instead, and then boot openSUSE from it. It has happened more than once.

Also, there are the people with EFI and/or GPT partitions...
