Re: [opensuse-factory] Can we assume that /bin/sh is bash?

Bash has documentation. If implementation does not match documentation
you can file a bug as much as you can against a POSIX-compliant shell.
With bash being much more active project than most POSIX-compliant
shells the bug is even much more likely to get resolved. And unlike
POSIX-compliant shells bash has BASH_VERSION which tells you *exactly*
what you are getting in case you need to support multiple versions that
behave differently.

And if you're in need of writing shell scripts that are specific to bash
versions,
you're free to require /bin/bash as interpreter.
