Bug Description

lintian depends directly upon the dash package which is unnecessary and inaccurate, it should at least allow bash as a substitute, as it will run fine under bash.

Suggests: binutils-multiarch

I see no dash in this list of dependencies in edgy.

Changed in lintian:
status: Unconfirmed → Rejected

My bad, when I went to install lintian, I also installed devscripts (which is something of a metapackage) The dependany must have come from there. My apologies.
