Wpossible-bashism-in-maintainer-script

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

This script is marked as running under /bin/sh, but it seems to use a feature found in bash but not in the SUSv3 or POSIX shell specification.

Examples: '==' in a test, it should use '=' instead 'read' without a variable in the argument 'function' to define a function 'source' instead of '.' '. command args', passing arguments to commands via 'source' is not supported '{foo,bar}' instead of 'foo bar' '[[ test ]]' instead of '[ test ]' (requires a Korn shell) 'type' instead of 'which' or 'command -v'

Please refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.4 for details.
