Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' 
package) check I've found your package containing a /bin/sh script making 
use of a bashism.

checkbashisms' output:
>possible bashism in ./usr/bin/enlightenment_remote line 11 (echo -e):
>echo -e "
>possible bashism in ./usr/bin/enlightenment_remote line 55 (echo -e):
>   echo -e "

Not using bash (or a Debian Policy conformant shell interpreter which 
doesn't provide such an extra feature) as /bin/sh is likely to lead to 
errors or unexpected behaviours.

You can find hints about how to fix bashisms at:

Thank you,
Raphael Geissert
