We plan to release coreutils-8.32 in the coming 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 (5.3 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = 7f5c08399157f45af9838cd6f2724643


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.31.90-cc4c/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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