Like I said, I have a list on another machine which, after some
investigation, appears to have a hw failure.
I can provide some figures based on the last archive-wide checkbashisms run
that included all those issues that were not relevant for the dash RG.
Saying that there are around 100 packages, or even less, that would be
affected by this RG is, IMO, close to reality.
