I would like to study GRUB2 and I wanted to find all modules description, all 
commands and all environment variables, but some commands and modules and 
variables description are missing in the documentation at URL

I had to study /etc/grub.d scripts to find out:

* GRUB_TIMEOUT is environment variable "timeout"

* GRUB_DEFAULT is environment variable "default"

* Hidden menu is created using "sleep" and "keystatus" command, sleep is not 
mentioned in the official documentation (I found the description on site and

There is no documentation on the available modules, only some of them are 
documented in examples, Franklin Piat has made the page but as stated "This 
documentation isn't updated anymore (since grub2-1.96+20080203 approximately)".

Is there some complete official documentation of GRUB2, or is GRUB2 full
documentation only in source code?;-)

Thank you for info.
