dash source package in Ubuntu


dash ( maverick; urgency=low

  [ Bhavani Shankar ]
  * Merge from debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
    - Make the package both "required" and "Essential" since this is our
      default system shell.
    - Add dependency on debianutils so /etc/shells exists before
      we are configured.
    - If the dash/sh question has not been seen by the user, reset it to
      the default which is now true.
    - Support build with profile feedback based optimization.

  [ Michael Vogt ]
  * diabled profile feedback build for now because the tests fail if
    is is enabled on amd64 (and maybe others)
