Found syntax error in ( 12: [: unexpected operator)

Hello together,

thanks to my starter license, I'm unable to file an issue to the staff directly. 

When I want to start Crowd 3.0.2 via, I'm running into an issue because of a syntax error in the .sh-script.

if [ "$PRGRUNMODE" == "true" ] ; then
exec apache-tomcat/bin/ run "$@"

 Crowd starts successfully but the script ends with an error: 12: [: unexpected operator

Solution: Remove one of the two equals in if condition block (the other if conditions do all have only one equal character).

if [ "$PRGRUNMODE" = "true" ] ; then
exec apache-tomcat/bin/ run "$@"


Could someone file a bug for this issue?
