We plan to release coreutils-8.26 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-ss.tar.xz) = 8b23df84039d6a48291f7f7b1bf81c2c


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.25.120-ca99c/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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