Is anyone disputing this ?
The policy in question says:
csh and tcsh should be avoided as scripting languages. See Csh
Programming Considered Harmful, one of the comp.unix.* FAQs. It can be
found on rtfm.mit.edu in PATHNAME. If an upstream package comes with
csh scripts then you must make sure that they start with #!/bin/csh
and make your package depend on the c-shell virtual package.
Is this not accurate ?
