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) = 3ce92d2c8da2842328415dab8d1f4bbc


To test follow this standard procedure:

  tar -xf coreutils-ss.tar.xz
  cd coreutils-8.29.64-1755f/
  ./configure && make check VERBOSE=yes

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


Changes since the previous snapshot are:

    maint: disable overly aggressive sc_gitignore_redundant

    * (sc_gitignore_redundant): Disabled for now as too
    aggressive flagging entries like /lib/arg-nonnull.h in
    a newly checked out repo.

    env: adjust diagnostics provided for shebang usage

    * src/env.c (main): Don't process '-' specially since
    that causes an issue on the openbsd getopt implementation
    where a lone '-' is now processed as an option, and anyway
    it doesn't particuarly help diagnosing common shebang
    usage issues.  Also don't restrict the extra diagnostics
    for shebang usage to the case with 3 arguments, as
    further arguments can be passed to a script.
    * tests/misc/ Adjust accordingly.

    tests: accept getopt errors without single-quotes

    On OpenBSD 6.2, invalid single options produce error messages
    without single quotes:

        $ ./src/chroot -/
        chroot: unknown option -- /

    As opposed to other systems:

        ./src/chroot: invalid option -- '/'

    Modify the grep search to accept this.

    * tests/misc/ (checkprg): Change the grep pattern
    to accomodate no-single-quotes cases.

    tests: fix false failures when perl not available

    * tests/ Reference the stub that skips perl tests,
    with the correct path.

    tests: fix false failure with limited shebang lines

    * tests/misc/ Provide a wrapper to
    emulate shebang processing, but without length limits,
    which are 127 on Linux for example.

    maint: update gnulib to latest

    * gnulib: Update to latest, which incorporates
    a thread linking fix from Bruno Haible,
    which was seen on newer Ubuntu systems.

    tests: remove unused Data::Dumper perl module

    The module is not needed anymore (was used during development).
    Despite being a Perl core module, platforms like CentOS don't install
    it by default.  Reported by Bruno Haible at

    * tests/misc/ Remove Data::Dumper.
