Hello maintainer,

While checking for bashisms in debian/rules with checkbashisms (from 
the 'devscripts' package) I've found your package making use of a bashism.

checkbashisms' output:
> possible bashism in gtm/debian/rules line 114 (echo -e):
>                         echo -e "\n$$patch ($$author):" >> $@T; \
> possible bashism in gtm/debian/rules line 121 (echo -e):
>                                 echo -e "\n$$patch ($$author):" >> $@T; \

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.
