Alright, I'm writing this all down in one place so I don't forget and others can rubber ducky me. Basically, we need to set Calamares up to configure some custom settings, iff the OEM GRUB entry is set. This isn't horribly complicated at all.

Exactly. Move everything over, it doesn't belong here. :P
Put it in rNEWREL New Release Tooling :P

I would suggest we just add this to rNEWREL New Release Tooling, sort of like how the Ubuntu release checklist is.
Check my kind of English and convert it into real English
I can count, I swear!

@wxl could you please make a separate task?
You hit the nail on the head @wxl :)
I just talked with a member of the Ubuntu Technical Board; it is a platform expectation that we do not modify this, because the base is Ubuntu.
and would function the same as selecting the boot entry (on BIOS I think?)
I said on the devel channel yesterday(?) that I think it's too late for release, but seeing as it's default in Virtualbox, it makes it much more urgent in my eyes. If we want to retest everything, Adam did say this on Thursday...
[20:53] <infinity> tsimonq2: Ultimately, for packages only you seed, you have final say anyway (up to a point). If you want to upload something and respin and retest all your crap 6 hours before release, be my guest. [20:53] <infinity> tsimonq2: If you want to do it an hour before release, you might have missed your window. :P
That being said, I want @guiverc's input on this, because he's the AWESOME (seriously!) tester who has been plowing through the testcases.
Packageset updates are manual, and I poked cyphermox at one point. I'll poke him again, at which point we can close this task, I think.
The new "Next Generation" installer subiquity is supposed to replace ubiquity
Also, @teward has more experience with this, but once we get something working, we need a systemd unit (again, probably mirrored after Fedora's) and some packaging (which I can handle).
I'd like it to function very similar to Fedora's, where, on boot, it goes through something like "Verifying checksums... 0% (Press Esc to cancel)"

Did we get it in too late for the ISO to build with it? (Also a side question: are seeds germinated as part of the ISO creation process or does that have its own cron job?).
My guess is that the GNOME ones are the UI components and the regular packages are the APIs and such. Can someone confirm that?
It all depends on what we can test.
