User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/38.3.0

We plan to release coreutils-8.25 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 (5.4 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-8.24.150-4ab87.tar.xz) = 7e509d9e7ed21c754d2ea28f026206ca


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf $downloaded_file
  cd coreutils-8.24.150-4ab87
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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