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) = 25c9aafb97b9ab17a2e748f46d3217f2


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.27.108-2ba96/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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


Changes since the previous snapshot are:

    tests: exclude the expensive gnulib fts-tests

    * gnulib: The only change in this gnulib update
    is the tagging of the fts-tests module as longrunning,
    which gnulib-tool currently implicitly excludes.
    This test was seen to take about 20s and 285MB.
    Reported by Assaf Gordon on space restricted VMs.

    tty: don't distinguish input errors

    * src/tty.c (main): Don't distinguish ENOTTY from other errors,
    because isatty() doesn't portably distinguish errors.
    Solaris returns ENOENT for all input errors for example.
    Musl also returns ENOENT, and ENODEV may be returned as disscussed at:
    * tests/misc/ Adjust accordingly.

    tests: avoid printf '0*d' construct unsupported by ash

    * tests/ln/ Generate specific length with space padding
    which is supported.
    Reported by Assaf Gordon on Alpine Linux.

    tests: skip tests upon failure to set SELinux context

    On some setups the root:object_r:tmp_t context is invalid.
    This does indicate a limitation in the test framework,
    but for now we'll relax this to skipping the tests.
    The tests still run on a Fedora 25 system for example.

    * tests/cp/ Upon chcon error, skip rather than ERROR.
    * tests/install/ Likewise.
    * tests/misc/ Likewise.
    * tests/misc/ Likewise.
    * tests/misc/ Likewise.
    * tests/mkdir/ Likewise.

    expr: fix a recently introduced memory leak

    * src/expr.c (eval6): Free memory allocated by mbs_logical_substr().

    Introduced in v8.27-47-ga9f2be5.  Detected by Coverity Analysis:

    src/expr.c:851: leaked_storage: Variable "s" going out of scope
    leaks the storage it points to.
    849|             char *s = mbs_logical_substr (l->u.s, pos, len);
    850|             v = str_value (s);
    851|->         }
    852|         freev (l);
    853|         freev (i1);
