We plan to release coreutils-8.27 in about a week, so any testing
you can do on various different systems between now and then
would be most welcome.


You can download the coreutils snapshot in xz format (5.2 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = 11633dc2137c50cb7a63e4c19edae7e9


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.26.57-00381/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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