Comment 3 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2022-04-16 17:02:49 UTC
 * QA Notice: shell script appears to use non-POSIX feature(s):
 *    possible bashism in /etc/init.d/pure-uploadscript line 5 (${parm/?/pat[/str]}):
 *    ftpd_configfile="/etc/${SVCNAME/uploadscript/ftpd}.conf"

@Conrad: can you fix this please? Just commit it by yourself. No need to fetch my approval.
Comment 4 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2022-04-16 17:04:10 UTC
Oh, and this one needs a revbump of course. Just do a "git mv ..."
Comment 5 Conrad Kostecki gentoo-dev 2022-04-16 20:34:10 UTC
