Package maintainer script policy.
While pondering the rush to make bash non-essential, I checked to see
how many of the pre- and post- scripts in /var/lib/dpkg/info were bash
541 Bourne shell script text
23 Bourne-Again shell script text
24 perl script text
1 ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1,
dynamically linked, stripped
While the last is surprising, it doesn't seem against policy. The
policy document I have doesn't insist that the package maintainer
scripts actually -be- scripts. It does seem odd, however.
Should I report this as a bug?
