- Fix vulnerability in su (bnc#697897).

Sat Apr  2 17:48:37 UTC 2011 -

- fix "cp -al does not preserve timestamps of symlinks"
  (bnc#696389, coreutils 8.0 - 8.10, openSUSE 11.3 and 11.4)

Fri Jan 14 14:13:28 CET 2011 -

- sort threading still broken, it deadlocks occasionally; set
  default number of threads to 1 as a workaround

Wed Jan  5 14:25:16 CET 2011 -

- Update to 8.9:
  Bug fixes

  split no longer creates files with a suffix length that
  is dependent on the number of bytes or lines per file.
  [bug introduced in coreutils-8.8]

Mon Jan  3 19:32:57 CET 2011 -

- Update to 8.8. Changes since 8.6:

  Bug fixes:

  cp -u no longer does unnecessary copying merely because the source
  has finer-grained time stamps than the destination.

  od now prints floating-point numbers without losing information, and
  it no longer omits spaces between floating-point columns in some cases.

  sort -u with at least two threads could attempt to read through a
  corrupted pointer. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.6]

  sort with at least two threads and with blocked output would busy-loop
  (spinlock) all threads, often using 100% of available CPU cycles to
  do no work.  I.e., "sort < big-file | less" could waste a lot of power.
  [bug introduced in coreutils-8.6]

  sort with at least two threads no longer segfaults due to use of pointers
  into the stack of an expired thread. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.6]

  sort --compress no longer mishandles subprocesses' exit statuses,
  no longer hangs indefinitely due to a bug in waiting for subprocesses,
  and no longer generates many more than NMERGE subprocesses.

  sort -m -o f f ... f no longer dumps core when file descriptors are limited.

  csplit no longer corrupts heap when writing more than 999 files,
  nor does it leak memory for every chunk of input processed
  [the bugs were present in the initial implementation]

  tail -F once again notices changes in a currently unavailable
  remote directory [bug introduced in coreutils-7.5]

  Changes in behavior:

  sort will not create more than 8 threads by default due to diminishing
  performance gains.  Also the --parallel option is no longer restricted
  to the number of available processors.

  cp --attributes-only now completely overrides --reflink.
  Previously a reflink was needlessly attempted.

  stat's %X, %Y, and %Z directives once again print only the integer
  part of seconds since the epoch.  This reverts a change from
  coreutils-8.6, that was deemed unnecessarily disruptive.
  To obtain a nanosecond-precision time stamp for %X use %.X;
  if you want (say) just 3 fractional digits, use %.3X.
  Likewise for %Y and %Z.

  stat's new %W format directive would print floating point seconds.
  However, with the above change to %X, %Y and %Z, we've made %W work
  the same way as the others.

  New features:

  split accepts the --number option to generate a specific number of files.

- Add a complete german translation.
- Add upstreams patch for suffix calculation in split.

Wed Dec 22 15:53:13 UTC 2010 -

- Use software services.

  cycle, coreutils is just too core

Tue Nov 16 10:50:04 UTC 2010 -

- split pam patch into separate independent files so the main
  feature can be shared with other distros
- don't hard require coreutils-lang

Thu Nov 11 16:33:50 CET 2010 -

- Update to 8.6:
  o bugfixes
  * du no longer multiply counts a file that is a directory or whose
    link count is 1.
  * du -H and -L now consistently count pointed-to files instead of
    symbolic links, and correctly diagnose dangling symlinks.
  * du --ignore=D now ignores directory D even when that directory is
    found to be part of a directory cycle.
  * split now diagnoses read errors rather than silently exiting.
  * tac would perform a double-free when given an input line longer
    than 16KiB.
  * tail -F once again notices changes in a currently unavailable
    directory, and works around a Linux kernel bug where inotify runs
    out of resources.
  * tr now consistently handles case conversion character classes.

  o New features
  * cp now accepts the --attributes-only option to not copy file data.
  * du recognizes -d N as equivalent to --max-depth=N
  * sort now accepts the --debug option, to highlight the part of the
    line significant in the sort, and warns about questionable options.
  * sort now supports -d, -f, -i, -R, and -V in any combination.
  * stat now accepts the %m format directive to output the mount point
    for a file.  It also accepts the %w and %W format directives for
    outputting the birth time of a file, if one is available.

  o Changes in behavior
  * df now consistently prints the device name for a bind mounted file,
    rather than its aliased target.
  * du now uses less than half as much memory when operating on trees
    with many hard-linked files.
  * ls -l now uses the traditional three field time style rather than
    the wider two field numeric ISO style in locales where a style has
    not been specified.
  * rm's -d now evokes an error;  before, it was silently ignored.
  * sort -g now uses long doubles for greater range and precision.
  * sort -h no longer rejects numbers with leading or trailing ".", and
    no longer accepts numbers with multiple ".".  It now considers all
    zeros to be equal.
  * sort now uses the number of available processors to parallelize
    the sorting operation.
  * stat now provides translated output when no format is specified.
  * stat no longer accepts the --context (-Z) option.
  * stat no longer accepts the %C directive when the --file-system
    option is in effect.
  * stat now outputs the full sub-second resolution for the atime,
    mtime, and ctime values since the Epoch, when using the %X, %Y, and
    %Z directives of the --format option.
  * touch's --file option is no longer recognized.  Use --reference=F
    (-r) instead.
  * truncate now supports setting file sizes relative to a reference
    file. Also errors are no longer suppressed for unsupported file
    types, and relative sizes are restricted to supported file types.

  See NEWS in the package documentation for more verbose description.

  PAM stack for su as root. Requires pam > 1.1.1.

Fri May  7 15:44:53 UTC 2010 -

- Update to 8.5:
  Bug fixes
  * cp and mv once again support preserving extended attributes.
  * cp now preserves "capabilities" when also preserving file ownership.7
  * ls --color once again honors the 'NORMAL' dircolors directive.
    [bug introduced in coreutils-6.11]
  * sort -M now handles abbreviated months that are aligned using
    blanks in the locale database.  Also locales with 8 bit characters
    are handled correctly, including multi byte locales with the caveat
    that multi byte characters are matched case sensitively.
  * sort again handles obsolescent key formats (+POS -POS) correctly. 
    Previously if -POS was specified, 1 field too many was used in the
    sort. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.2]

  New features

  * join now accepts the --header option, to treat the first line of
    each file as a header line to be joined and printed

  * timeout now accepts the --kill-after option which sends a kill
    signal to the monitored command if it's still running the specified
    duration after the initial signal was sent.

  * who: the "+/-" --mesg (-T) indicator of whether a user/tty is
    accepting messages could be incorrectly listed as "+", when in
    fact, the user was not accepting messages (mesg no).  Before, who
    would examine only the permission bits, and not consider the group
    of the TTY device file.  Thus, if a login tty's group would change
    somehow e.g., to "root", that would make it unwritable (via
    write(1)) by normal users, in spite of whatever the permission bits
    might imply.  Now, when configured using the
    --with-tty-group[=NAME] option, who also compares the group of the
    TTY device with NAME (or "tty" if no group name is specified).

  Changes in behavior

  * ls --color no longer emits the final 3-byte color-resetting escape
    sequence when it would be a no-op.

  * join -t '' no longer emits an error and instead operates on each
    line as a whole (even if they contain NUL characters).

  For other changes since 7.1 see NEWS.
- Split-up coreutils-%%{version}.diff as far as possible.
- Prefix all patches with coreutils-.

- Update to coreutils 7.1.
  ** New features
    Add extended attribute support available on certain filesystems like ext2
    and XFS.
      cp: Tries to copy xattrs when --preserve=xattr or --preserve=all specified
      mv: Always tries to copy xattrs
      install: Never copies xattrs
    cp and mv accept a new option, --no-clobber (-n): silently refrain
    from overwriting any existing destination file
    dd accepts iflag=cio and oflag=cio to open the file in CIO (concurrent I/O)
    mode where this feature is available.
    install accepts a new option, --compare (-C): compare each pair of source
    and destination files, and if the destination has identical content and
    any specified owner, group, permissions, and possibly SELinux context, then
    do not modify the destination at all.
    ls --color now highlights hard linked files, too
    stat -f recognizes the Lustre file system type
  ** Bug fixes
    chgrp, chmod, chown --silent (--quiet, -f) no longer print some diagnostics
    [bug introduced in coreutils-5.1]
    cp uses much less memory in some situations
    cp -a now correctly tries to preserve SELinux context (announced in 6.9.90),
    doesn't inform about failure, unlike with --preserve=all
    du --files0-from=FILE no longer reads all of FILE into RAM before
    processing the first file name
    seq 9223372036854775807 9223372036854775808 now prints only two numbers
    on systems with extended long double support and good library support.
    Even with this patch, on some systems, it still produces invalid output,
    from 3 to at least 1026 lines long. [bug introduced in coreutils-6.11]
    seq -w now accounts for a decimal point added to the last number
    to correctly print all numbers to the same width.
    wc --files0-from=FILE no longer reads all of FILE into RAM, before
    processing the first file name, unless the list of names is known
    to be small enough.
  ** Changes in behavior
    cp and mv: the --reply={yes,no,query} option has been removed.
    Using it has elicited a warning for the last three years.
    dd: user specified offsets that are too big are handled better.
    Previously, erroneous parameters to skip and seek could result
    in redundant reading of the file with no warnings or errors.
    du: -H (initially equivalent to --si) is now equivalent to
    --dereference-args, and thus works as POSIX requires
    shred: now does 3 overwrite passes by default rather than 25.
    ls -l now marks SELinux-only files with the less obtrusive '.',
    rather than '+'.  A file with any other combination of MAC and ACL
    is still marked with a '+'.

Wed Nov 19 12:42:10 CET 2008 -

- Fix sort field limit in multibyte case.

Wed Jun  4 14:10:05 CEST 2008 -

- Update to coreutils 6.12.
  ** Bug fixes
    chcon, runcon: --help output now includes the bug-reporting address
    cp -p copies permissions more portably.  For example, on MacOS X 10.5,
    "cp -p some-fifo some-file" no longer fails while trying to copy the
    permissions from the some-fifo argument.
    id with no options now prints the SELinux context only when invoked
    with no USERNAME argument.
    id and groups once again print the AFS-specific nameless group-ID (PAG).
    Printing of such large-numbered, kernel-only (not in /etc/group) group-IDs
    was suppressed in 6.11 due to ignorance that they are useful.
    uniq: avoid subtle field-skipping malfunction due to isblank misuse.
    In some locales on some systems, isblank(240) (aka &nbsp) is nonzero.
    On such systems, uniq --skip-fields=N would fail to skip the proper
    number of fields for some inputs.
    tac: avoid segfault with --regex (-r) and multiple files, e.g.,
    "echo > x; tac -r x x".  [bug present at least in textutils-1.8b, from 1992]
  ** Changes in behavior
    install once again sets SELinux context, when possible
    [it was deliberately disabled in 6.9.90]

Sun Apr 20 00:19:07 CEST 2008 -

- Update to coreutils 6.11.
  ** Bug fixes
    configure --enable-no-install-program=groups now works.
    "cp -fR fifo E" now succeeds with an existing E.  Before this fix, using
    -fR to copy a fifo or "special" file onto an existing file would fail
    with EEXIST.  Now, it once again unlinks the destination before trying
    to create the destination file.  [bug introduced in coreutils-5.90]
    dd once again works with unnecessary options like if=/dev/stdin and
    of=/dev/stdout.  [bug introduced in fileutils-4.0h]
    id now uses getgrouplist, when possible.  This results in
    much better performance when there are many users and/or groups.
    ls no longer segfaults on files in /proc when linked with an older version
    of libselinux.  E.g., ls -l /proc/sys would dereference a NULL pointer.
    md5sum would segfault for invalid BSD-style input, e.g.,
    echo 'MD5 (' | md5sum -c -  Now, md5sum ignores that line.
    sha1sum, sha224sum, sha384sum, and sha512sum are affected, too.
    [bug introduced in coreutils-5.1.0]
    md5sum -c would accept a NUL-containing checksum string like "abcd\0..."
    and would unnecessarily read and compute the checksum of the named file,
    and then compare that checksum to the invalid one: guaranteed to fail.
    Now, it recognizes that the line is not valid and skips it.
    sha1sum, sha224sum, sha384sum, and sha512sum are affected, too.
    [bug present in the original version, in coreutils-4.5.1, 1995]
    "mkdir -Z x dir" no longer segfaults when diagnosing invalid context "x"
    mkfifo and mknod would fail similarly.  Now they're fixed.
    mv would mistakenly unlink a destination file before calling rename,
    when the destination had two or more hard links.  It no longer does that.
    [bug introduced in coreutils-5.3.0]
    "paste -d'\' file" no longer overruns memory (heap since coreutils-5.1.2,
    stack before then) [bug present in the original version, in 1992]
    "pr -e" with a mix of backspaces and TABs no longer corrupts the heap
    [bug present in the original version, in 1992]
    "ptx -F'\' long-file-name" would overrun a malloc'd buffer and corrupt
    the heap.  That was triggered by a lone backslash (or odd number of them)
    at the end of the option argument to --flag-truncation=STRING (-F),
    --word-regexp=REGEXP (-W), or --sentence-regexp=REGEXP (-S).
    "rm -r DIR" would mistakenly declare to be "write protected" -- and
    prompt about -- full DIR-relative names longer than MIN (PATH_MAX, 8192).
    "rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty" detects and ignores the failure
    in more cases when a directory is empty.
    "seq -f % 1" would issue the erroneous diagnostic "seq: memory exhausted"
    rather than reporting the invalid string format.
    [bug introduced in coreutils-6.0]
  ** New features
    join now verifies that the inputs are in sorted order.  This check can
    be turned off with the --nocheck-order option.
    sort accepts the new option --sort=WORD, where WORD can be one of
    general-numeric, month, numeric or random.  These are equivalent to the
    options --general-numeric-sort/-g, --month-sort/-M, --numeric-sort/-n
    and --random-sort/-R, resp.
  ** Improvements
    id and groups work around an AFS-related bug whereby those programs
    would print an invalid group number, when given no user-name argument.
    ls --color no longer outputs unnecessary escape sequences
    seq gives better diagnostics for invalid formats.
  ** Portability
    rm now works properly even on systems like BeOS and Haiku,
    which have negative errno values.
  ** Consistency
    install, mkdir, rmdir and split now write --verbose output to stdout,
    not to stderr.

Sat Jan 12 19:08:54 CET 2008 -

- Update to coreutils 6.9.92.
  ** Bug fixes
    cp --parents no longer uses uninitialized memory when restoring the
    permissions of a just-created destination directory.
    [bug introduced in coreutils-6.9.90]
    tr's case conversion would fail in a locale with differing numbers
    of lower case and upper case characters.  E.g., this would fail:
    env LC_CTYPE=en_US.ISO-8859-1 tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]'
    [bug introduced in coreutils-6.9.90]
  ** Improvements
    "touch -d now writable-but-owned-by-someone-else" now succeeds
    whenever that same command would succeed without "-d now".
    Before, it would work fine with no -d option, yet it would
    fail with the ostensibly-equivalent "-d now".

Mon Jan  7 16:14:51 CET 2008 -

- Update to coreutils 6.9.91.
  ** Bug fixes
    "ls -l" would not output "+" on SELinux hosts unless -Z was also given.
    "rm" would fail to unlink a non-directory when run in an environment
    in which the user running rm is capable of unlinking a directory.

  ** New programs
    arch: equivalent to uname -m, not installed by default
    But don't install this program on Solaris systems.
    chcon: change the SELinux security context of a file
    mktemp: create a temporary file or directory (or names)
    runcon: run a program in a different SELinux security context
  ** Programs no longer installed by default
    hostname, su
  ** Changes in behavior
    cp, by default, refuses to copy through a dangling destination symlink
    Set POSIXLY_CORRECT if you require the old, risk-prone behavior.
    pr -F no longer suppresses the footer or the first two blank lines in
    the header.  This is for compatibility with BSD and POSIX.
    tr now warns about an unescaped backslash at end of string.
    The tr from coreutils-5.2.1 and earlier would fail for such usage,
    and Solaris' tr ignores that final byte.
  ** New features
    Add SELinux support, based on the patch from Fedora:
    * cp accepts new --preserve=context option.
    * "cp -a" works with SELinux:
    Now, cp -a attempts to preserve context, but failure to do so does
    not change cp's exit status.  However "cp --preserve=context" is
    similar, but failure *does* cause cp to exit with nonzero status.
    * install accepts new "-Z, --context=C" option.
    * id accepts new "-Z" option.
    * stat honors the new %C format directive: SELinux security context string
    * ls accepts a slightly modified -Z option.
    * ls: contrary to Fedora version, does not accept --lcontext and --scontext
    cp -p tries to preserve the GID of a file even if preserving the UID
    is not possible.
    uniq accepts a new option: --zero-terminated (-z).  As with the sort
    option of the same name, this makes uniq consume and produce
    NUL-terminated lines rather than newline-terminated lines.
    wc no longer warns about character decoding errors in multibyte locales.
    This means for example that "wc /bin/sh" now produces normal output
    (though the word count will have no real meaning) rather than many
    error messages.
  ** New build options
    By default, "make install" no longer attempts to install (or even build) su.
    To change that, use ./configure --enable-install-program=su.
    If you also want to install the new "arch" program, do this:
    ./configure --enable-install-program=arch,su.
    You can inhibit the compilation and installation of selected programs
    at configure time.  For example, to avoid installing "hostname" and
    "uptime", use ./configure --enable-no-install-program=hostname,uptime
    Note: currently, "make check" passes, even when arch and su are not
    built (that's the new default).  However, if you inhibit the building
    and installation of other programs, don't be surprised if some parts
    of "make check" fail.
  ** Remove deprecated options
    df no longer accepts the --kilobytes option.
    du no longer accepts the --kilobytes or --megabytes options.
    ls no longer accepts the --kilobytes option.
    ptx longer accepts the --copyright option.
    who no longer accepts -i or --idle.
  ** Improved robustness
    ln -f can no longer silently clobber a just-created hard link.
    In some cases, ln could be seen as being responsible for data loss.
    For example, given directories a, b, c, and files a/f and b/f, we
    should be able to do this safely: ln -f a/f b/f c && rm -f a/f b/f
    However, before this change, ln would succeed, and thus cause the
    loss of the contents of a/f.
    stty no longer silently accepts certain invalid hex values
    in its 35-colon commmand-line argument
  ** Bug fixes
    chmod no longer ignores a dangling symlink.  Now, chmod fails
    with a diagnostic saying that it cannot operate on such a file.
    [bug introduced in coreutils-5.1.0]
    cp attempts to read a regular file, even if stat says it is empty.
    Before, "cp /proc/cpuinfo c" would create an empty file when the kernel
    reports stat.st_size == 0, while "cat /proc/cpuinfo > c" would "work",
    and create a nonempty one. [bug introduced in coreutils-6.0]
    cp --parents no longer mishandles symlinks to directories in file
    name components in the source, e.g., "cp --parents symlink/a/b d"
    no longer fails.  Also, 'cp' no longer considers a destination
    symlink to be the same as the referenced file when copying links
    or making backups.  For example, if SYM is a symlink to FILE,
    "cp -l FILE SYM" now reports an error instead of silently doing
    nothing.  The behavior of 'cp' is now better documented when the
    destination is a symlink.
    "cp -i --update older newer" no longer prompts; same for mv
    "cp -i" now detects read errors on standard input, and no longer consumes
    too much seekable input; same for ln, install, mv, and rm.
    cut now diagnoses a range starting with zero (e.g., -f 0-2) as invalid;
    before, it would treat it as if it started with 1 (-f 1-2).
    "cut -f 2-0" now fails; before, it was equivalent to "cut -f 2-"
    cut now diagnoses the '-' in "cut -f -" as an invalid range, rather
    than interpreting it as the unlimited range, "1-".
    date -d now accepts strings of the form e.g., 'YYYYMMDD +N days',
    in addition to the usual 'YYYYMMDD N days'.
    du -s now includes the size of any stat'able-but-inaccessible directory
    in the total size.
    du (without -s) prints whatever it knows of the size of an inaccessible
    directory.  Before, du would print nothing for such a directory.
    ls -x DIR would sometimes output the wrong string in place of the
    first entry.  [introduced in coreutils-6.8]
    ls --color would mistakenly color a dangling symlink as if it were
    a regular symlink.  This would happen only when the dangling symlink
    was not a command-line argument and in a directory with d_type support.
    [introduced in coreutils-6.0]
    ls --color, (with a custom LS_COLORS envvar value including the
    ln=target attribute) would mistakenly output the string "target"
    before the name of each symlink.  [introduced in coreutils-6.0]
    od's --skip (-j) option now works even when the kernel says that a
    nonempty regular file has stat.st_size = 0.  This happens at least
    with files in /proc and linux-2.6.22.
    "od -j L FILE" had a bug: when the number of bytes to skip, L, is exactly
    the same as the length of FILE, od would skip *no* bytes.  When the number
    of bytes to skip is exactly the sum of the lengths of the first N files,
    od would skip only the first N-1 files. [introduced in textutils-2.0.9]
    ./printf %.10000000f 1 could get an internal ENOMEM error and generate
    no output, yet erroneously exit with status 0.  Now it diagnoses the error
    and exits with nonzero status.  [present in initial implementation]
    seq no longer mishandles obvious cases like "seq 0 0.000001 0.000003",
    so workarounds like "seq 0 0.000001 0.0000031" are no longer needed.
    seq would mistakenly reject some valid format strings containing %%,
    and would mistakenly accept some invalid ones. e.g., %g%% and %%g, resp.
    "seq .1 .1" would mistakenly generate no output on some systems
    Obsolete sort usage with an invalid ordering-option character, e.g.,
    "env _POSIX2_VERSION=199209 sort +1x" no longer makes sort free an
    invalid pointer [introduced in coreutils-6.5]
    sorting very long lines (relative to the amount of available memory)
    no longer provokes unaligned memory access
    split --line-bytes=N (-C N) no longer creates an empty file
    [this bug is present at least as far back as textutils-1.22 (Jan, 1997)]
    tr -c no longer aborts when translating with Set2 larger than the
    complement of Set1.  [present in the original version, in 1992]
    tr no longer rejects an unmatched [:lower:] or [:upper:] in SET1.
    [present in the original version]

  ** Bug fixes
    cp -x (--one-file-system) would fail to set mount point permissions
    The default block size and output format for df -P are now unaffected by
    the DF_BLOCK_SIZE, BLOCK_SIZE, and BLOCKSIZE environment variables.  It
    is still affected by POSIXLY_CORRECT, though.
    Using pr -m -s (i.e. merging files, with TAB as the output separator)
    no longer inserts extraneous spaces between output columns.

Sun Feb 25 10:58:58 CET 2007 -

- Update to coreutils 6.8.
  ** Bug fixes
    chgrp, chmod, and chown now honor the --preserve-root option.
    Before, they would warn, yet continuing traversing and operating on /.
    chmod no longer fails in an environment (e.g., a chroot) with openat
    support but with insufficient /proc support.
    "cp --parents F/G D" no longer creates a directory D/F when F is not
    a directory (and F/G is therefore invalid).
    "cp --preserve=mode" would create directories that briefly had
    too-generous permissions in some cases.  For example, when copying a
    directory with permissions 777 the destination directory might
    temporarily be setgid on some file systems, which would allow other
    users to create subfiles with the same group as the directory.  Fix
    similar problems with 'install' and 'mv'.
    cut no longer dumps core for usage like "cut -f2- f1 f2" with two or
    more file arguments.  This was due to a double-free bug, introduced
    in coreutils-5.3.0.
    dd bs= operands now silently override any later ibs= and obs=
    operands, as POSIX and tradition require.
    "ls -FRL" always follows symbolic links on Linux.  Introduced in
    A cross-partition "mv /etc/passwd ~" (by non-root) now prints
    a reasonable diagnostic.  Before, it would print this:
    "mv: cannot remove `/etc/passwd': Not a directory".
    pwd and "readlink -e ." no longer fail unnecessarily when a parent
    directory is unreadable.
    "rm -rf /etc/passwd" (run by non-root) now prints a diagnostic.
    Before it would print nothing.
    "rm --interactive=never F" no longer prompts for an unwritable F
  ** New features
    sort's new --compress-program=PROG option specifies a compression
    program to use when writing and reading temporary files.
    This can help save both time and disk space when sorting large inputs.
  ** New features
    sort accepts the new option -C, which acts like -c except no diagnostic
    is printed.  Its --check option now accepts an optional argument, and
    --check=quiet and --check=silent are now aliases for -C, while
    --check=diagnose-first is an alias for -c or plain --check.

Sat Dec  9 01:00:28 CET 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.7.
  ** Bug fixes
    When cp -p copied a file with special mode bits set, the same bits
    were set on the copy even when ownership could not be preserved.
    This could result in files that were setuid to the wrong user.
    To fix this, special mode bits are now set in the copy only if its
    ownership is successfully preserved.  Similar problems were fixed
    with mv when copying across file system boundaries.  This problem
    affects all versions of coreutils through 6.6.
    cp --preserve=ownership would create output files that temporarily
    had too-generous permissions in some cases.  For example, when
    copying a file with group A and mode 644 into a group-B sticky
    directory, the output file was briefly readable by group B.
    Fix similar problems with cp options like -p that imply
    --preserve=ownership, with install -d when combined with either -o
    or -g, and with mv when copying across file system boundaries.
    This bug affects coreutils 6.0 through 6.6.
    du --one-file-system (-x) would skip subdirectories of any directory
    listed as second or subsequent command line argument.  This bug affects
    coreutils-6.4, 6.5 and 6.6.

Wed Nov 22 16:16:52 CET 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.6.
  ** Bug fixes
    ls would segfault (dereference a NULL pointer) for a file with a
    nameless group or owner.  This bug was introduced in coreutils-6.5.
    A bug in the latest official m4/gettext.m4 (from gettext-0.15)
    made configure fail to detect gettext support, due to the unusual
    way in which coreutils uses AM_GNU_GETTEXT.
  ** Improved robustness
    Now, du (and the other fts clients: chmod, chgrp, chown) honor a
    trailing slash in the name of a symlink-to-directory even on
    Solaris 9, by working around its buggy fstatat implementation.

Mon Nov 20 11:34:05 CET 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.5.
  ** Bug fixes
    du (and the other fts clients: chmod, chgrp, chown) would exit early
    when encountering an inaccessible directory on a system with native
    openat support (i.e., linux-2.6.16 or newer along with glibc-2.4
    or newer).  This bug was introduced with the switch to gnulib's
    openat-based variant of fts, for coreutils-6.0.
    "ln --backup f f" now produces a sensible diagnostic
  ** New features
    rm accepts a new option: --one-file-system

Mon Oct 23 10:58:38 CEST 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.4.
  ** Bug fixes
    chgrp and chown would malfunction when invoked with both -R and -H and
    with one or more of the following: --preserve-root, --verbose, --changes,
    --from=o:g (chown only).  This bug was introduced with the switch to
    gnulib's openat-based variant of fts, for coreutils-6.0.
    cp --backup dir1 dir2, would rename an existing dir2/dir1 to dir2/dir1~.
    This bug was introduced in coreutils-6.0.
    With --force (-f), rm no longer fails for ENOTDIR.
    For example, "rm -f existing-non-directory/anything" now exits
    successfully, ignoring the error about a nonexistent file.

Mon Oct  9 14:48:23 CEST 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.3.
  ** Improved robustness
    pinky no longer segfaults on Darwin 7.9.0 (MacOS X 10.3.9) due to a
    buggy native getaddrinfo function.
    rm works around a bug in Darwin 7.9.0 (MacOS X 10.3.9) that would
    sometimes keep it from removing all entries in a directory on an HFS+
    or NFS-mounted partition.
    sort would fail to handle very large input (around 40GB) on systems with a
    mkstemp function that returns a file descriptor limited to 32-bit offsets.
  ** Bug fixes
    chmod would fail unnecessarily in an unusual case: when an initially-
    inaccessible argument is rendered accessible by chmod's action on a
    preceding command line argument.  This bug also affects chgrp, but
    it is harder to demonstrate.  It does not affect chown.  The bug was
    introduced with the switch from explicit recursion to the use of fts
    in coreutils-5.1.0 (2003-10-15).
    cp -i and mv -i occasionally neglected to prompt when the copy or move
    action was bound to fail.  This bug dates back to before fileutils-4.0.
    With --verbose (-v), cp and mv would sometimes generate no output,
    or neglect to report file removal.
    For the "groups" command:
      "groups" no longer prefixes the output with "user :" unless more
      than one user is specified; this is for compatibility with BSD.
      "groups user" now exits nonzero when it gets a write error.
      "groups" now processes options like --help more compatibly.
    shuf would infloop, given 8KB or more of piped input
  ** Portability
    Versions of chmod, chown, chgrp, du, and rm (tools that use openat etc.)
    compiled for Solaris 8 now also work when run on Solaris 10.

Thu Oct  5 00:16:42 CEST 2006 -

- cp: Replace the old --attributes=regex option with
  --preserve=xattrs.  Only copy extended attributes if this
  option is given. Use libattr's new copy_attr_action() function
  to check which attributes to copy in /etc/xattr.conf.

Tue Sep 19 13:20:47 CEST 2006 -

- Disable broken autopoint.

Mon Sep 18 13:13:58 CEST 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.2.
  ** Changes in behavior
    mkdir -p and install -d (or -D) now use a method that forks a child
    process if the working directory is unreadable and a later argument
    uses a relative file name.  This avoids some race conditions, but it
    means you may need to kill two processes to stop these programs.
    rm now rejects attempts to remove the root directory, e.g., `rm -fr /'
    now fails without removing anything.  Likewise for any file name with
    a final `./' or `../' component.
    tail now ignores the -f option if POSIXLY_CORRECT is set, no file
    operand is given, and standard input is any FIFO; formerly it did
    this only for pipes.
  ** Infrastructure changes
    Coreutils now uses gnulib via the gnulib-tool script.
    If you check the source out from CVS, then follow the instructions
    in README-cvs.  Although this represents a large change to the
    infrastructure, it should cause no change in how the tools work.
  ** Bug fixes
    cp --backup no longer fails when the last component of a source file
    name is "." or "..".
    "ls --color" would highlight other-writable and sticky directories
    no differently than regular directories on a file system with
    dirent.d_type support.
    "mv -T --verbose --backup=t A B" now prints the " (backup: B.~1~)"
    suffix when A and B are directories as well as when they are not.
    mv and "cp -r" no longer fail when invoked with two arguments
    where the first one names a directory and the second name ends in
    a slash and doesn't exist.  E.g., "mv dir B/", for nonexistent B,
    now succeeds, once more.  This bug was introduced in coreutils-5.3.0.

Fri Sep  1 15:56:51 CEST 2006 -

- Fix sbin patch [#202632].

Mon Aug 21 11:32:53 CEST 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.1.
  ** Changes in behavior
    df now considers BSD "kernfs" file systems to be dummies
  ** Bug fixes
    cp --sparse preserves sparseness at the end of a file, even when
    the file's apparent size is not a multiple of its block size.
    [introduced with the original design, in fileutils-4.0r, 2000-04-29]
    df (with a command line argument) once again prints its header
    [introduced in coreutils-6.0]
    ls -CF would misalign columns in some cases involving non-stat'able files
    [introduced in coreutils-6.0]

Tue Aug 15 17:50:41 CEST 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 6.0.
  ** Improved robustness
    df: if the file system claims to have more available than total blocks,
    report the number of used blocks as being "total - available"
    (a negative number) rather than as garbage.
    dircolors: a new autoconf run-test for AIX's buggy strndup function
    prevents malfunction on that system;  may also affect cut, expand,
    and unexpand.
    fts no longer changes the current working directory, so its clients
    (chmod, chown, chgrp, du) no longer malfunction under extreme conditions.
    pwd and other programs using lib/getcwd.c work even on file systems
    where dirent.d_ino values are inconsistent with those from stat.st_ino.
    rm's core is now reentrant: rm --recursive (-r) now processes
    hierarchies without changing the working directory at all.
  ** Changes in behavior
    basename and dirname now treat // as different from / on platforms
    where the two are distinct.
    chmod, install, and mkdir now preserve a directory's set-user-ID and
    set-group-ID bits unless you explicitly request otherwise.  E.g.,
    `chmod 755 DIR' and `chmod u=rwx,go=rx DIR' now preserve DIR's
    set-user-ID and set-group-ID bits instead of clearing them, and
    similarly for `mkdir -m 755 DIR' and `mkdir -m u=rwx,go=rx DIR'.  To
    clear the bits, mention them explicitly in a symbolic mode, e.g.,
    `mkdir -m u=rwx,go=rx,-s DIR'.  To set them, mention them explicitly
    in either a symbolic or a numeric mode, e.g., `mkdir -m 2755 DIR',
    `mkdir -m u=rwx,go=rx,g+s' DIR.  This change is for convenience on
    systems where these bits inherit from parents.  Unfortunately other
    operating systems are not consistent here, and portable scripts
    cannot assume the bits are set, cleared, or preserved, even when the
    bits are explicitly mentioned.  For example, OpenBSD 3.9 `mkdir -m
    777 D' preserves D's setgid bit but `chmod 777 D' clears it.
    Conversely, Solaris 10 `mkdir -m 777 D', `mkdir -m g-s D', and
    `chmod 0777 D' all preserve D's setgid bit, and you must use
    something like `chmod g-s D' to clear it.
    `cp --link --no-dereference' now works also on systems where the
    link system call cannot create a hard link to a symbolic link.
    This change has no effect on systems with a Linux-based kernel.
    csplit and nl now use POSIX syntax for regular expressions, not
    Emacs syntax.  As a result, character classes like [[:print:]] and
    interval expressions like A\{1,9\} now have their usual meaning,
    . no longer matches the null character, and \ must precede the + and
    ? operators.
    date: a command like date -d '2006-04-23 21 days ago' would print
    the wrong date in some time zones.  (see the test for an example)
    df now considers "none" and "proc" file systems to be dummies and
    therefore does not normally display them.  Also, inaccessible file
    systems (which can be caused by shadowed mount points or by chrooted
    bind mounts) are now dummies, too.
    expr no longer complains about leading ^ in a regular expression
    (the anchor is ignored), or about regular expressions like A** (the
    second "*" is ignored).  expr now exits with status 2 (not 3) for
    errors it detects in the expression's values; exit status 3 is now
    used only for internal errors (such as integer overflow, which expr
    now checks for).
    install and mkdir now implement the X permission symbol correctly,
    e.g., `mkdir -m a+X dir'; previously the X was ignored.
    install now creates parent directories with mode u=rwx,go=rx (755)
    instead of using the mode specified by the -m option; and it does
    not change the owner or group of parent directories.  This is for
    compatibility with BSD and closes some race conditions.
    ln now uses different (and we hope clearer) diagnostics when it fails.
    ln -v now acts more like FreeBSD, so it generates output only when
    successful and the output is easier to parse.
    ls now defaults to --time-style='locale', not --time-style='posix-long-iso'.
    However, the 'locale' time style now behaves like 'posix-long-iso'
    if your locale settings appear to be messed up.  This change
    attempts to have the default be the best of both worlds.
    mkfifo and mknod no longer set special mode bits (setuid, setgid,
    and sticky) with the -m option.
    nohup's usual diagnostic now more precisely specifies the I/O
    redirections, e.g., "ignoring input and appending output to
    nohup.out".  Also, nohup now redirects stderr to nohup.out (or
    $HOME/nohup.out) if stdout is closed and stderr is a tty; this is in
    response to Open Group XCU ERN 71.
    rm --interactive now takes an optional argument, although the
    default of using no argument still acts like -i.
    rm no longer fails to remove an empty, unreadable directory
    seq changes:
      seq defaults to a minimal fixed point format that does not lose
      information if seq's operands are all fixed point decimal numbers.
      You no longer need the `-f%.f' in `seq -f%.f 1048575 1024 1050623',
      for example, since the default format now has the same effect.
      seq now lets you use %a, %A, %E, %F, and %G formats.
      seq now uses long double internally rather than double.
    sort now reports incompatible options (e.g., -i and -n) rather than
    silently ignoring one of them.
    stat's --format=FMT option now works the way it did before 5.3.0:
    FMT is automatically newline terminated.  The first stable release
    containing this change was 5.92.
    stat accepts the new option --printf=FMT, where FMT is *not*
    automatically newline terminated.
    stat: backslash escapes are interpreted in a format string specified
    via --printf=FMT, but not one specified via --format=FMT.  That includes
    octal (\ooo, at most three octal digits), hexadecimal (\xhh, one or
    two hex digits), and the standard sequences (\a, \b, \f, \n, \r, \t,
    \v, \", \\).
    With no operand, 'tail -f' now silently ignores the '-f' only if
    standard input is a FIFO or pipe and POSIXLY_CORRECT is set.
    Formerly, it ignored the '-f' when standard input was a FIFO, pipe,
    or socket.
  ** Scheduled for removal
    ptx's --copyright (-C) option is scheduled for removal in 2007, and
    now evokes a warning.  Use --version instead.
    rm's --directory (-d) option is scheduled for removal in 2006.  This
    option has been silently ignored since coreutils 5.0.  On systems
    that support unlinking of directories, you can use the "unlink"
    command to unlink a directory.
    Similarly, we are considering the removal of ln's --directory (-d,
    -F) option in 2006.  Please write to <> if this
    would cause a problem for you.  On systems that support hard links
    to directories, you can use the "link" command to create one.
  ** New programs
    base64: base64 encoding and decoding (RFC 3548) functionality.
    sha224sum: print or check a SHA224 (224-bit) checksum
    sha256sum: print or check a SHA256 (256-bit) checksum
    sha384sum: print or check a SHA384 (384-bit) checksum
    sha512sum: print or check a SHA512 (512-bit) checksum
    shuf: Shuffle lines of text.
  ** New features
    chgrp now supports --preserve-root, --no-preserve-root (default),
    as it was documented to do, and just as chmod, chown, and rm do.
    New dd iflag= and oflag= flags:
      'directory' causes dd to fail unless the file is a directory, on
      hosts that support this (e.g., Linux kernels, version 2.1.126 and
      later).  This has limited utility but is present for completeness.
      'noatime' causes dd to read a file without updating its access
      time, on hosts that support this (e.g., Linux kernels, version
      2.6.8 and later).
      'nolinks' causes dd to fail if the file has multiple hard links,
      on hosts that support this (e.g., Solaris 10 and later).
    ls accepts the new option --group-directories-first, to make it
    list directories before files.
    rm now accepts the -I (--interactive=once) option.  This new option
    prompts once if rm is invoked recursively or if more than three
    files are being deleted, which is less intrusive than -i prompting
    for every file, but provides almost the same level of protection
    against mistakes.
    shred and sort now accept the --random-source option.
    sort now accepts the --random-sort (-R) option and `R' ordering option.
    sort now supports obsolete usages like "sort +1 -2" unless
    POSIXLY_CORRECT is set.  However, when conforming to POSIX
    1003.1-2001 "sort +1" still sorts the file named "+1".
    wc accepts a new option --files0-from=FILE, where FILE contains a
    list of NUL-terminated file names.
  ** Bug fixes
    cat with any of the options, -A -v -e -E -T, when applied to a
    file in /proc or /sys (linux-specific), would truncate its output,
    usually printing nothing.
    cp -p would fail in a /proc-less chroot, on some systems
    When `cp -RL' encounters the same directory more than once in the
    hierarchy beneath a single command-line argument, it no longer confuses
    them with hard-linked directories.
    fts-using tools (chmod, chown, chgrp, du) no longer fail due to
    a double-free bug -- it could be triggered by making a directory
    inaccessible while e.g., du is traversing the hierarchy under it.
    fts-using tools (chmod, chown, chgrp, du) no longer misinterpret
    a very long symlink chain as a dangling symlink.  Before, such a
    misinterpretation would cause these tools not to diagnose an ELOOP error.
    ls --indicator-style=file-type would sometimes stat a symlink
    ls --file-type worked like --indicator-style=slash (-p),
    rather than like --indicator-style=file-type.
    mv: moving a symlink into the place of an existing non-directory is
    now done atomically;  before, mv would first unlink the destination.
    mv -T DIR EMPTY_DIR no longer fails unconditionally.  Also, mv can
    now remove an empty destination directory: mkdir -p a b/a; mv a b
    rm (on systems with openat) can no longer exit before processing
    all command-line arguments.
    rm is no longer susceptible to a few low-probability memory leaks.
    rm -r no longer fails to remove an inaccessible and empty directory
    rm -r's cycle detection code can no longer be tricked into reporting
    a false positive (introduced in fileutils-4.1.9).
    shred --remove FILE no longer segfaults on Gentoo systems
    sort would fail for large inputs (~50MB) on systems with a buggy
    mkstemp function.  sort and tac now use the replacement mkstemp
    function, and hence are no longer subject to limitations (of 26 or 32,
    on the maximum number of files from a given template) on HP-UX 10.20,
    SunOS 4.1.4, Solaris 2.5.1 and OSF1/Tru64 V4.0F&V5.1.
    tail -f once again works on a file with the append-only
    attribute (affects at least Linux ext2, ext3, xfs file systems)

Tue Aug  8 15:29:32 CEST 2006 -

- Move sux to %{_bindir}.

Mon Jun 26 13:20:23 CEST 2006 -

- Update to coreutils 5.97.
  ** Bug fixes
    rebuild with better autoconf test for when the lstat replacement
    function is needed -- required for Solaris 9
    cat with any of the options, -A -v -e -E -T, when applied to a
    file in /proc or /sys (linux-specific), would truncate its output,
    usually printing nothing.
  ** Improved robustness
    dircolors: a new autoconf run-test for AIX's buggy strndup function
    prevents malfunction on that system;  may also affect cut, expand,
    and unexpand.
  ** New features
    chgrp now supports --preserve-root, --no-preserve-root (default),
    as it was documented to do, and just as chmod, chown, and rm do.
