Package description for 'ash'

NetBSD's ash (Almquist sh) for Linux

 ash is a Bourne compatible shell. It is without job control only 62K.
 The slackware distribution has shown, that such a small shell can be
 useful for a good bootdisk. But I don't think, this shell is good for
 interactive use. Take other shells like bash, ksh or tcsh for that.
