We plan to release coreutils-8.29 in the next few days,
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) = fecfcefd7c393bd3ee1691c183ff5c84


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.28.61-70c84/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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