@Gozenka One minor difference is that since this file is separate, you won't have to deal with pacnew files whenever the default pacman config changes.

Compared to adding NoUpgrade = usr/bin/sh bin/sh in /etc/pacman.conf, what would be different when using the dashbinsh package? As I understand, the effect of both would be to keep the /bin/sh symlink to dash when bash gets updated. Is there a potential case that dashbinsh.hook or the package covers (or ignores), compared to the other option?

Just a question to make sure I am not missing an important case. Thanks!

lsb_release has been fixed upstream and the echo -e problem described below ↓ does not exist anymore

Is the license of this package GPLv2? Or is it v3? I want to make a derivative of this package.

Just as a heads up: This unfortunately breaks lsb_release, because it uses echo -e with #!/bin/sh:

$ lsb_release
-e LSB Version: 1.4

Thanks for catching that.

It seems you added 'sh' to 'depends' instead of 'provides' by mistake.

HoaS commented on 2020-12-06 17:50 (UTC)

I don't use Arch any more and I've lost my AUR key so I've had to disown this package, feel free to adopt and make the changes.

If you do then add 'sh' to the 'provides' array, as suggested by Janfel. They were right and I was wrong.

Denton-L commented on 2020-12-06 10:07 (UTC)

The arch should be changed to 'any' since there's nothing inherently x86-exclusive about this package. Thanks!

HoaS commented on 2020-11-02 17:36 (UTC)

I disagree :-)

This package only provides a hook so I think you should instead open a bug for the dash package in [Core] so that provides 'sh', which would make more sense (IMO).
