[INFO ONLY] I have a copy of grub legacy in case you need it

I have a copy of 32 bit grub legacy.

Recently, 16 August 2012 I noticed a "huge" drop in file size of the repo. ~400 kilos to 115 kilos

unpack shows the latest deb has lost the stage* files etc
and appears to be just the docs.

For those who need a full file its at

the latest is visible here

you can use xarchiver to unpack any file you might need

maybe I'm missing something but you seem to be advertising that you have a copy of an old Debian package. Can this not be obtained from Debian snapshots?

yes and no...giggles

what I did not say...but now I will is the version number at my second link did NOT change but its size did...version is 0.97-66

ok so lets look at older package from your site suggested

its size is 117882 or about 115 kb

and I am reporting a version higher than number with a higher package size

I shall not sleep worried tonight

sorry, I still don't understand what you are getting at. You repackaged grub-legacy with some extra files? Or perhaps you are saying there is a bug in a recent grub-legacy package?
