We plan to release coreutils-8.28 towards the end of this 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 (5.2 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = f38d980b63f88b66bf2415c3edf6313b


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.27.99-3ebdc3/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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