Re: tech-ctte: More specific advice regarding merged-/usr and implications of #978636

I just remembered a pending MR that I'd say is a little more important than
"good to have":


Without this one-line change, /etc/shells on merged-/usr systems will have some
shells listed twice and some shells (like /usr/bin/bash) missing. The reason
is, that dpkg-realpath doesn't support merged-/usr and thus a workaround is

Given the recent CTTE ruling over debianutils (#994275) and since the MR from
five months ago has no maintainer activity, I wanted to ask you for informal
advice on this. Should I just file a bug and NMU with maximum delay? Or is
application of this fix deemed more important?


cheers, josch
