Because Perl doesn't have a := operator, I was wondering what this message
might be about.
- "shell commands starts.");
+ "shell commands starts.",
+ "Additionally, each \$\$ is replaced with a single \$, so variables",
+ "that have references to shell variables or regular expressions are",

Hmm, seems you are starting to use '$' characters in strings. That makes
no sense at all.
Can you use log messages describing the actual change.
