Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' package) 
check I've found your package containing several /bin/sh scripts making 
use of a bashism.

checkbashisms' output:

Not using bash as /bin/sh is likely to lead to errors or unexpected 
Please be aware that although 
bash is currently the default /bin/sh there's a release goal for Lenny to 
make dash the default /bin/sh[1].

If you want more information about dash as /bin/sh, you can read:

For more information please refer to the Debian Policy section 10.4 supporting
