I do not know where it does come from, but why people still use bash instead of sh?

I did some "bin/bash" search on that git repo

bare-united/p (master) $ grep bash . -R |grep -v changelog |grep -v completion


they can be replaced with #!/bin/sh

./ghc/debian/rules:GHC=$(firstword $(shell bash -c "type -p ghc"))

this is something really obscure to me... why can't we just do
"GHC=$(which ghc)"

sorry I didn't spot it before :)


they all seems to be replaceable

As you know bash is trying to be removed from essential packages, moreover there is no need
to force it when not necessary, specially because bin/sh defaults to dash.

I might be wrong there, maybe some script uses some bashism and they can't run with dash, but
AFAICS the code is standard :)
