Likewise. Regarding the root shell issue, I wouldn't have an issue with it being /bin/sh. The admin is always free to chsh it to the shell of their choice. [Slightly related: it would be nice if d-i could default to password-free locked root account for wheezy, i.e. sudo by default, which would partly mitigate the issue by not requiring the use of a root shell for most uses of the root account.] However, there have got to be hundreds of packages using bash without a dependency. Do we have any information on the affected packages (i.e. all those with a #!/bin/bash shebang in any provided executable scripts)? Regards, Roger -- .''`.
