We plan to release coreutils-8.30 in the coming 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 (5.3 MB) from:

And verify with gpg or md5sum with:
  MD5 (coreutils-ss.tar.xz) = 0e7f0cceb9940143d230c94079c6a754


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.29.57-2ed7c2/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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