[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#535970: Spaces before () in POSIX shell scripts

reassign 535970 mksh
found 535970 mksh/35.2-3
found 535970 mksh/38.3-1

mksh R39 (upstream) contains support for
│stop () {
although I didn’t check if POSIX mandates this or if the
extra space before “()” is a Policy 10.4 violation.

Fixing this in Lenny requires consideration.

“It is inappropriate to require that a time represented as
 seconds since the Epoch precisely represent the number of
 seconds between the referenced time and the Epoch.”
