Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' package) 
check I've found your package containing one or more /bin/sh scripts making 
use of bashisms.

checkbashisms' output:
> possible bashism in ./etc/init.d/fetch-ldap-cert line 49 ($"foo" should be
> eval_gettext "foo"): 
> echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart|force-reload}"

Not using bash (or a Debian Policy conformant shell interpreter which does 
provide such an extra feature) as /bin/sh is likely to lead to errors or 
unexpected behaviours.
Please be aware that although bash is currently the default /bin/sh there's a 
release goal for Lenny to make dash the default /bin/sh[1].

If you want more information about dash as /bin/sh, you can read:

For more information please refer to the Debian Policy section 10.4 supporting 
this argument at:

Hints about how to fix bashisms:
Sometimes these bugs are already fixed in Ubuntu, look at the PTS.

 debian-edu-config - Configuration files for Skolelinux systems
Closes: 486029
 debian-edu-config (1.421) unstable; urgency=low
   [ Petter Reinholdtsen ]
   * Correct DHCP server configuration in LDAP and on disk.
   * Report test duration instead of time stamps.
   * Remove obsolete code in testsuite used to to rename
     /etc/skolelinux/config to /etc/debian-edu/config.
   * Speed up some tests by reducing number of ping packages used from
     3 to 1.
   * Speed up DNS test suite by only looking up external DNS entries if
     ping reches the the IP address in question.
   * Speed up package installation test by only quering dpkg once for
     the list of installed packages.
   * Correct timezone test to work properly, and fix bugs in handling
     of BR and SE country codes.
   * Depend on discover | discover1 for the hardware test.
   * Increase cfengine editfilesize from 150k to 200k, to make sure it
     can edit squid.conf (now 164k).
   * Update syslog configuration to configure rsyslog instead of
   * Move iceweasel client proxy setting from cf.iceweasel to cf.squid
     to have it next to the configuration of environment and KDE.  This
     make cf.iceweasel obsolete.  Remove the conffile.
   * Change wpad URL passed on using DHCP from
     to http://www/wpad.dat, to make it easier to redirect using DNS.
     Add the wpad info to the DHCP packages sent on the thin client
     network too.
   * Remove obsolete debian/debian-edu-config.modules and the call to
     dh_installmodules.  It was useful in Woody, a long time ago.
   * Depend on resolvconf to get the correct DNS client configuration.
   * Change iceweasel and KDE proxy settings to use "Web Access
     Protocol Discovery" for proxy configuration, to avoid hardcoding
     proxy settings on the clients.  Add wpad DNS alias to get this
     working with Firefox.
   * Remove KDE test to check for the new proxy setting indicator, as it no
     longer make sense.
   * Change LTSP test to look for /etc/hosts in the chroot, not just the
     /etc/ directory, as the latter is generated by cfengine.
   * Add a rootDSE ldif entry to provide extra information in the
     OpenLDAP rootDSE.
   * Add RFC 2782 style service entries for ldap, http and syslog in
   * Add smtp-server and www-server options to the DHCP server setup,
     pointing to http://www/ and postoffice.
   * Provide replacement /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf file, to add options
     ntp-servers, log-servers, smtp-server, www-server, wpad-url to the
     request list.
   * Add script /usr/sbin/debian-edu-pxeinstall to generate a PXE boot
     environment for installing Debian Edu.
   * Provide PXE boot image /var/lib/tftpboot/debian-edu/pxelinux.0
     on backbone network by default, and enable PXE installation.
     Depend on atftpd | tftpd-hpa, tftp, syslinux, memtest86 and
     debian-edu-artwork to get the needed files.
   * Add empty netgroup shutdown-at-night-hosts for make it easier to
     activate it on clients.  Add generator for the server part using
     this netgroup.
   * Fix samba test to run only on Main-Server, where the samba packages
     are installed.
   * Add cron job to automatically run 'debian-edu-fsautoresize -n' on
     hosts listed as member of the fsautoresize-hosts netgroup, to make
     it easier to automatically extend LVM volumes on a large site.
   * Change testsuite/ldap-client to use the LDAP rootDSE to locate the
     LDAP base.
   * Remove unused and old LDAP schemas norEduPerson and EduPerson.
   * Added script /usr/share/debian-edu-config/tools/qemu-test-network
     to test a complete network using qemu.
   * Rewrite how the networked desktop-profile settings are enabled, to
     activate when the education-networked package is installed, instead
     of when the education-standalone package is not installed.
   * Edit init.d scripts to remove bashism in text output.  No use
     providing translation hooks when the rest of the i18n framework
     is missing (Closes: #486029).
   * Move etcinsvk from Recommends to Depends, to make sure it always is
   [ Holger Levsen ]
   * Remove obsolete code checking for /etc/skolelinux in
     bin/debian-edu-hd-warn, share/debian-edu-config/tools/logoutkill.sh
     and share/debian-edu-config/tools/nightkill.sh
   * Change the hardcoded distribution name in /usr/sbin/debian-edu-pxeinstall
     to lenny, so that this will continue to work when testing becomes stable.
   * Rewrite test for etcinsvk in postinst to keep lintians checkbashism test
