This change was successfully implemented on March 26th, 2014.

The default shell for all ECE-managed Debian Linux workstations and servers was changed from dash to bash.

Please see the following articles for additional context

As a reminder, good scripting practice includes an explicit declaration of the shell required. Non-standard scripting calling /bin/sh may result in undesirable behaviour.
