I went through the open bugs (I skipped the ones already on wishlist)

that match REGEX

block/character special files
* 19509 [diffutils] [PATCH] diff: treat fifos as identical
not blocking issue, patch needs review

* 17185  diff --help doesn't mention short forms of some options
minor issue, not blocking

* 18655 Regression in 3.3 documentation versus 3.2
answered, bug must be closed

* 18973 diffutils-3.3 test-mbrtowc3.sh fails on Solaris without European 
not triaged, no access to solaris to try it

not a bug, must be closed

answered, can be closed

RFC with patch not reviewed

commented, can be closed

* 20279 [diffutils] With -r, option to avoid duplicate differences due to 
relative symbolic links

* 21034 [diffutils] [bug-diffutils] bug#21023: bug#21023: REQUEST:
