We plan to release coreutils-8.23 next week, so any testing
you can do on various different systems between now and Thursday
would be most welcome.


You can download the coreutils snapshot in xz format (5.3 MB) from:

And verify it using:
  MD5 (coreutils-8.22.151-37b36.tar.xz) = dbc0571a26bb91fd8a8f2fbd6dfff851


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf $downloaded_file
  cd coreutils-8.22.151-37b36
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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