Good--it fits then.

The quoting to handle this has been repeatedly revised in SVN recently.
I simply have not yet gotten it to work. E.g.,
will expand to
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -egNewSense hackers <address@hidden> \
-mgNewSense hackers <address@hidden> -us -uc -ai386
which is wrong. The latest revision, 281, expands to this:
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -e$MAINTINFO -m$MAINTINFO -us -uc -ai386"
which is also wrong. Of course, I might be missing something obvious.
I just use the default bash package:
$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.2.39(1)-release (i486-pc-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
A way to get it to work is just to introduce a command variable like
MAINTINFO='a b <address@hidden>'
bash -c "$BUILD_CMD"

Yes, I am sure I made it clumsier than it should be.
