$? is the return code of the previous program.

The "if" command runs a program given as it's arguments and depending on the zero/non-zero return code either runs the then or the else leg.

The "test" command will evaluate it's arguments and set its return code.

cvs is a program that will also set it's return code, hence can be used with if.

Why does it have to be korn shell?

NAME
cvs-debi - install cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package SYNOPSIS
cvs-debi [options] [package ...] DESCRIPTION
cvs-debi is run from the CVS working directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-debuild. It uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the .changes file generated in that run. It then runs debpkg -i on every .deb archive listed in the .changes file to install them, assuming that all of the .deb archives live in the same directory as the .changes file. Note that you probably don't want to run this program on a .changes file relating to a different architecture after cross-compiling the package! If a list of packages is given on the command line, then only those debs with names in this list of packages will be installed. Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter. Since installing a package requires root privileges, debi calls debpkg rather than dpkg directly. Thus debi will only be useful if it is either being run as root or debpkg can be run as root. See debpkg(1) for more details. OPTIONS
All current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones listed below have any effect. For more details on all of them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1) manpage. -adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description of these options. They affect the search for the .changes file. They are provided to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file. -Mmodule The name of the CVS module. -Ppackage The name of the package. -Vversion The version number of the package. -Ttag The CVS tag to use for exporting sources. -Rroot directory Root of the original sources archive. -Wwork directory The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory. -xprefix This option provides the CVS default module prefix. --help, --version Show help message and version information respectively. SEE ALSO
cvs-buildpackage(1), cvs-debc(1) cvs-debuild(1) and debi(1). AUTHOR
cvs-buildpackage was written by Manoj Srivastava, and the current version of debi was written by Julian Gilbey <jdg@debian.org>. They have been combined into this program by Julian Gilbey. DEBIAN
