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/stumpish line 38 (builtin):
>    echo() { builtin echo -e "$@"; }
>possible bashism in ./usr/bin/stumpish line 184 (read with option other 
than -r):
>        while read -p '> ' REPLY

Not using bash (or a Debian Policy conformant shell interpreter which 
doesn't provide such an extra feature) as /bin/sh is likely to lead to 
errors or unexpected behaviours.

You can find hints about how to fix bashisms at:

Thank you,
