All reports of possible-bashism-in-maintainer-script for the archive. The extended description of this tag is:

This script is marked as running under /bin/sh, but it seems to use a feature found in bash but not in the SUSv3 or POSIX shell specification.


     '==' in a test, it should use '=' instead
     'read' without a variable in the argument
     'function' to define a function
     'source' instead of '.'
     '. command args', passing arguments to commands via 'source' is not supported
     '{foo,bar}' instead of 'foo bar'
     '[[ test ]]' instead of '[ test ]' (requires a Korn shell)
     'type' instead of 'which' or 'command -v'

Refer to Debian Policy Manual section 10.4 (Scripts) for details.
