These are needed on BIOS systems
grub2-tools is 7MiB
Installed size is actually 36MB.
/usr/sbin/grub2-sparc64-setup is 2MB and probably doesn't work on
anything else than ppc64(le).
/usr/sbin/grub2-macbless is also 2MB and probably doesn't work on non-Macs
grub2 is 3.8MiB
These are needed on UEFI systems
shim-signed is 633KiB
grub2-efi is 837KiB
So, I'm not sure where 70MB is coming from.
Matt was talking about 70MB on disk (installed size), not rpm package size.
