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/megahal-personal line 24 (echo -e):
>     echo -e "#quit\n\n" | megahal > /dev/null 2>&1

Not using bash as /bin/sh is likely to lead to errors or unexpected 
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:
