[platform-testers] new snapshot available: grep-2.20.83-06900

From: Jim Meyering
Subject: [platform-testers] new snapshot available: grep-2.20.83-06900
Date: Sun, 09 Nov 2014 13:00:01 -0800

Testing the first snapshot exposed several problems,
and most have been addressed. The sole remaining problem
is the failure of an "expensive" (not run by default: big-match)
that makes most systems run out of memory. I haven't looked at it yet.

Thanks to all who have helped so far, this snapshot should be
much closer to releasable.

Please let us know if you find any problems.
