request ;-) - the script needs to change the shebang to
/bin/bash when built for Leap 15.x or older.

However, this was so simple that I just submitted the fix myself ;-)

Thanks very much.

I just had a look at the patch and it made me curious.
What is wrong with
#!/usr/bin/env bash
as a shebang, why not keep it that way? It was exactly what I put into
/usr/bin/ ;-)

/usr/bin/env bash has some disadvantages:
- it adds a level of indirection
- rpm requirement autodetection "breaks" (untested guess: the package
will require /usr/bin/env, but not bash)
- worst: the script might get a "random" bash (possibly /usr/local/bin/
bash) which is not expected by the packaged script, and might or might
not work

That's why packaged scripts should avoid /usr/bin/env and have the
interpreter in the shebang. (I'd have to search for it, but I'm quite
sure that our packaging guidelines and/or rpmlint discourage usage of
