Thanks for the update. Although I am following the mailing list there wasn't an announcement. Perhaps you can tell me from which channel you've received the notification?

And for the record. I've built twice the development LFS BOOK with dash as /bin/sh and I didn't had any problem.

I'm using dash as login shell and to many scripts (difference in speed is quite noticeable) and in many cases as interactive shell.

Debian will switch the /bin/sh to dash when all the debian scripts will get fixed, see:;

As it known, Ubuntu has dash as /bin/sh with an advance a fast booting; see also a wiki document about writing portable scripts.

Better not to use /bin/sh in scripts when using bash extensions.

I've linked dash against to libedit-20090111-3.0.

Keep in mind that libedit doesn't support UTF-8 and multi-byte character sets, though.
