Would you advise for or against this script? Found at: https://github.com/favadi/build-emacs/b ... d-emacs.sh

Are there any red flags? Is there a way to modify it to make it safer? I exported my UberStudent virtual machine and will try running this script on it tomorrow, but was hoping to get some advice on how I might modify it, for example using checkinstall and so on.

There is nothing malicious whatsoever about this script and it should do as advertised.
