Hi release team, please consider unblocking 3.18.6-2 It contains a one-line fix, which allows etch users using dash as /bin/sh to successfully upgrade, reported as bug #508943  I was advised on #debian-devel, that this is not an RC bug, as SUSv3 compliance is required by the Debian Policy (since 3.7.3). This policy change was after the etch release though, so I consider that a valid upgrade case. I'll leave it up to the release team though, to adjust the severity, if necessary. The changelog is: rsyslog (3.18.6-2) unstable; urgency=low * debian/rsyslog.postinst - Use $(($var)) syntax for arithmetic expressions, as dash from etch is not SUSv3 compliant in that regard which leads to failing dist upgrades when dash is used as /bin/sh.
