Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' package) 
check I've found your package containing a /bin/sh script making 
use of a bashism.

checkbashisms' output:
> possible bashism in ./usr/bin/showaudio line 264 (should be 'b = a'):
>         if test "$thishost" == "$AUDIOPHONEHOST" \
> possible bashism in ./usr/bin/showaudio line 265 (should be 'b = a'):
>                 -o "$thishost" == "$AUDIOPHONEHOSTLONG"

Not using bash as /bin/sh would lead to errors. 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:


Thank you,
