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/sbin/aideinit line 129 ('$(< foo)' should be
> '$(cat foo)'): if [ "$(< /var/log/aide/aideinit.errors wc -l)" -gt 0 ];
> then

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,
