We plan to release coreutils-8.22 next week, so any testing
you can do on various different systems between now and Wednesday
would be most welcome.


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf $downloaded_file
  cd coreutils-8.21.176-37e00
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

Failures are reported and details are in tests/test-suite.log


There are two formats available to download:

coreutils snapshot in xz format (5.1 MB):
  MD5 (coreutils-8.21.176-37e00.tar.xz) = af22fc69b05f23a65308eb16234a7714

coreutils snapshot in gz format for older systems (12 MB):
  MD5 (coreutils-8.21.176-37e00.tar.gz) = 6b5db8619af7e4deece478a7dc534f98
