Being the one who wrote it, yes it isn't.
This is why we added a comment about it.
We're only generating the kernel initrds

You're confusing things.
We altered the message b/c of this bug report as indeed
we're no more preparing the boot loader (and for quite
a few years, as the bootloader is only set after the summary)

It's untranslated b/c nobody came with a right translation

Before asking this again, just read further what the code do or the
above bug report.

This has nothing to do with the bootloader.
The functions have kept their names but the
bootloader is not set up before the summary,
way later...

Again, this is why we added the "NOT" comment
