Changelog for coreutils-doc-8.32-1.1.noarch.rpm :

* Fri Oct 16 2020 lnusselAATTsuse.de- prepare usrmerge (boo#1029961)
* Mon Aug 31 2020 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- gnulib-test-avoid-FP-perror-strerror.patch: Add patch to avoid false-positive error in gnulib tests \'test-perror2\' and \'test-strerror_r\', visible on armv7l.- coreutils.spec: Reference the patch.
* Thu Jul 16 2020 dimstarAATTopensuse.org- Drop suse-module-tools BuildRequires: this was used for the macro regenerate_initrd_post/posttrans, which have been moved to rpm-config-SUSE in Jan 2019.
* Sat Jun 13 2020 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- coreutils-gnulib-disable-test-float.patch: Add patch to temporarily disable the gnulib test \'test-float\' failing on ppc and ppc64le.- coreutils.spec: Reference the patch. While at it, avoid conditional Patch and Source entries as that break cross-platform builds from source RPMs.
* Mon May 04 2020 dmuellerAATTsuse.com- add coreutils-use-python3.patch to minimally port away from python 2.x use of pyinotify in the testsuite
* Mon Mar 09 2020 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Update to 8.32:
* Noteworthy changes in release 8.32 (2020-03-05) [stable]
*
* Bug fixes cp now copies /dev/fd/N correctly on platforms like Solaris where it is a character-special file whose minor device number is N. [bug introduced in fileutils-4.1.6] dd conv=fdatasync no longer reports a \"Bad file descriptor\" error when fdatasync is interrupted, and dd now retries interrupted calls to close, fdatasync, fstat and fsync instead of incorrectly reporting an \"Interrupted system call\" error. [bugs introduced in coreutils-6.0] df now correctly parses the /proc/self/mountinfo file for unusual entries like ones with \'\\r\' in a field value (\"mount -t tmpfs tmpfs /foo$\'\\r\'bar\"), when the source field is empty (\'mount -t tmpfs \"\" /mnt\'), and when the filesystem type contains characters like a blank which need escaping. [bugs introduced in coreutils-8.24 with the introduction of reading the /proc/self/mountinfo file] factor again outputs immediately when stdout is a tty but stdin is not. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.24] ln works again on old systems without O_DIRECTORY support (like Solaris 10), and on systems where symlink (\"x\", \".\") fails with errno == EINVAL (like Solaris 10 and Solaris 11). [bug introduced in coreutils-8.31] rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty now works correctly for directories that fail to be removed due to permission issues. Previously the exit status was reversed, failing for non empty and succeeding for empty directories. [bug introduced in coreutils-6.11] \'shuf -r -n 0 file\' no longer mistakenly reads from standard input. [bug introduced with the --repeat feature in coreutils-8.22] split no longer reports a \"output file suffixes exhausted\" error when the specified number of files is evenly divisible by 10, 16, 26, for --numeric, --hex, or default alphabetic suffixes respectively. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.24] seq no longer prints an extra line under certain circumstances (such as \'seq -f \"%g \" 1000000 1000000\'). [bug introduced in coreutils-6.10]
*
* Changes in behavior Several programs now check that numbers end properly. For example, \'du -d 1x\' now reports an error instead of silently ignoring the \'x\'. Affected programs and options include du -d, expr\'s numeric operands on non-GMP builds, install -g and -o, ls\'s TABSIZE environment variable, mknod b and c, ptx -g and -w, shuf -n, and sort --batch-size and --parallel. date now parses military time zones in accordance with common usage: \"A\" to \"M\" are equivalent to UTC+1 to UTC+12 \"N\" to \"Y\" are equivalent to UTC-1 to UTC-12 \"Z\" is \"zulu\" time (UTC). For example, \'date -d \"09:00B\" is now equivalent to 9am in UTC+2 time zone. Previously, military time zones were parsed according to the obsolete rfc822, with their value negated (e.g., \"B\" was equivalent to UTC-2). [The old behavior was introduced in sh-utils 2.0.15 ca. 1999, predating coreutils package.] ls issues an error message on a removed directory, on GNU/Linux systems. Previously no error and no entries were output, and so indistinguishable from an empty directory, with default ls options. uniq no longer uses strcoll() to determine string equivalence, and so will operate more efficiently and consistently.
*
* New Features ls now supports the --time=birth option to display and sort by file creation time, where available. od --skip-bytes now can use lseek even if the input is not a regular file, greatly improving performance in some cases. stat(1) supports a new --cached= option, used on systems with statx(2) to control cache coherency of file system attributes, useful on network file systems.
*
* Improvements stat and ls now use the statx() system call where available, which can operate more efficiently by only retrieving requested attributes. stat and tail now know about the \"binderfs\", \"dma-buf-fs\", \"erofs\", \"ppc-cmm-fs\", and \"z3fold\" file systems. stat -f -c%T now reports the file system type, and tail -f uses inotify.

* Mon Mar 11 2019 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Update to 8.31:
* Noteworthy changes in release 8.31 (2019-03-10) [stable]
*
* Bug fixes \'base64 a b\' now correctly diagnoses \'b\' as the extra operand, not \'a\'. [bug introduced in coreutils-5.3.0] When B already exists, \'cp -il A B\' no longer immediately fails after asking the user whether to proceed. [This bug was present in \"the beginning\".] df no longer corrupts displayed multibyte characters on macOS. [bug introduced with coreutils-8.18] seq no longer outputs inconsistent decimal point characters for the last number, when locales are misconfigured. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.0] shred, sort, and split no longer falsely report ftruncate errors when outputting to less-common file types. For example, the shell command \'sort /dev/null -o /dev/stdout | cat\' no longer fails with an \"error truncating\" diagnostic. [bug was introduced with coreutils-8.18 for sort and split, and (for shared memory objects only) with fileutils-4.1 for shred] sync no longer fails for write-only file arguments. [bug introduced with argument support to sync in coreutils-8.24] \'tail -f file | filter\' no longer exits immediately on AIX. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.28] \'tail -f file | filter\' no longer goes into an infinite loop if filter exits and SIGPIPE is ignored. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.28]
*
* Changes in behavior cksum, dd, hostid, hostname, link, logname, sleep, tsort, unlink, uptime, users, whoami, yes: now always process --help and --version options, regardless of any other arguments present before any optional \'--\' end-of-options marker. nohup now processes --help and --version as first options even if other parameters follow. \'yes a -- b\' now outputs \'a b\' instead of including the end-of-options marker as before: \'a -- b\'. echo now always processes backslash escapes when the POSIXLY_CORRECT environment variable is set. When possible \'ln A B\' now merely links A to B and reports an error if this fails, instead of statting A and B before linking. This uses fewer system calls and avoids some races. The old statting approach is still used in situations where hard links to directories are allowed (e.g., NetBSD when superuser). ls --group-directories-first will also group symlinks to directories. \'test -a FILE\' is not supported anymore. Long ago, there were concerns about the high probability of humans confusing the -a primary with the -a binary operator, so POSIX changed this to \'test -e FILE\'. Scripts using it were already broken and non-portable; the -a unary operator was never documented. wc now treats non breaking space characters as word delimiters unless the POSIXLY_CORRECT environment variable is set.
*
* New features id now supports specifying multiple users. \'date\' now supports the \'+\' conversion specification flag, introduced in POSIX.1-2017. printf, seq, sleep, tail, and timeout now accept floating point numbers in either the current or the C locale. For example, if the current locale\'s decimal point is \',\', \'sleep 0,1\' and \'sleep 0.1\' now mean the same thing. Previously, these commands accepted only C-locale syntax with \'.\' as the decimal point. The new behavior is more compatible with other implementations in non-C locales. test now supports the \'-N FILE\' unary operator (like e.g. bash) to check whether FILE exists and has been modified since it was last read. env now supports \'--default-signal[=SIG]\', \'--ignore-signal[=SIG]\', and \'--block-signal[=SIG], to setup signal handling before executing a program. env now supports \'--list-signal-handling\' to indicate non-default signal handling before executing a program.
*
* New commands basenc is added to complement existing base64,base32 commands, and encodes and decodes printable text using various common encodings: base64,base64url,base32,base32hex,base16,base2,z85.
*
* Improvements ls -l now better aligns abbreviated months containing digits, which is common in Asian locales. stat and tail now know about the \"sdcardfs\" file system on Android. stat -f -c%T now reports the file system type, and tail -f uses inotify. stat now prints file creation time when supported by the file system, on GNU Linux systems with glibc >= 2.28 and kernel >= 4.11.- Refresh patches (line number changes only):

* Tue Jul 03 2018 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Update to 8.30:
* Noteworthy changes in release 8.30 (2018-07-01) [stable]
*
* Bug fixes \'cp --symlink SRC DST\' will again correctly validate DST. If DST is a regular file and SRC is a symlink to DST, then cp will no longer allow that operation to clobber DST. Also with -d, if DST is a symlink, then it can always be replaced, even if it points to SRC on a separate device. [bugs introduced with coreutils-8.27] \'cp -n -u\' and \'mv -n -u\' now consistently ignore the -u option. Previously, this option combination suffered from race conditions that caused -u to sometimes override -n. [bug introduced with coreutils-7.1] \'cp -a --no-preserve=mode\' now sets appropriate default permissions for non regular files like fifos and character device nodes etc., and leaves mode bits of existing files unchanged. Previously it would have set executable bits on created special files, and set mode bits for existing files as if they had been created. [bug introduced with coreutils-8.20] \'cp --remove-destination file symlink\' now removes the symlink even if it can\'t be traversed. [bug introduced with --remove-destination in fileutils-4.1.1] ls no longer truncates the abbreviated month names that have a display width between 6 and 12 inclusive. Previously this would have output ambiguous months for Arabic or Catalan locales. \'ls -aA\' is now equivalent to \'ls -A\', since -A now overrides -a. [bug introduced in coreutils-5.3.0] \'mv -n A B\' no longer suffers from a race condition that can overwrite a simultaneously-created B. This bug fix requires platform support for the renameat2 or renameatx_np syscalls, found in recent Linux and macOS kernels. As a side effect, ‘mv -n A A’ now silently does nothing if A exists. [bug introduced with coreutils-7.1]
*
* Changes in behavior \'cp --force file symlink\' now removes the symlink even if it is self referential. ls --color now matches file extensions case insensitively.
*
* New features cp --reflink now supports --reflink=never to enforce a standard copy. env supports a new -v/--debug option to show verbose information about each processing step. env supports a new -S/--split-string=S option to split a single argument string into multiple arguments. Used to pass multiple arguments in scripts (shebang lines). md5sum accepts a new option: --zero (-z) to delimit the output lines with a NUL instead of a newline character. This also disables file name escaping. This also applies to sha
*sum and b2sum. rm --preserve-root now supports the --preserve-root=all option to reject any command line argument that is mounted to a separate file system.
*
* Improvements cut supports line lengths up to the max file size on 32 bit systems. Previously only offsets up to SIZE_MAX-1 were supported. stat and tail now know about the \"exfs\" file system, which is a version of XFS. stat -f --format=%T now reports the file system type, and tail -f uses inotify. wc avoids redundant processing of ASCII text in multibyte locales, which is especially significant on macOS.
*
* Build-related Adjust to glibc >= 2.28 (bsc#1182550, jsc#SLE-13520, jsc#SLE-13756)- Refresh patches (line number changes only):

* Thu Dec 28 2017 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Update to 8.29:
* Noteworthy changes in release 8.29 (2017-12-27) [stable]
*
* Bug fixes b2sum no longer crashes when processing certain truncated check files. [bug introduced with b2sum coreutils-8.26] dd now ensures the correct cache ranges are specified for the \"nocache\" and \"direct\" flags. Previously some pages in the page cache were not invalidated. [bug introduced for \"direct\" in coreutils-7.5, and with the \"nocache\" implementation in coreutils-8.11] df no longer hangs when given a fifo argument. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.3] ptx -S no longer infloops for a pattern which returns zero-length matches. [the bug dates back to the initial implementation] shred --remove will again repeatedly rename files with shortening names to attempt to hide the original length of the file name. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.28] stty no longer crashes when processing settings with -F also specified. [bug introduced in fileutils-4.0] tail --bytes again supports non seekable inputs on all systems. On systems like android it always tried to process as seekable inputs. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.24] timeout will again notice its managed command exiting, even when invoked with blocked CHLD signal, or in a narrow window where this CHLD signal from the exiting child was missed. In each case timeout would have then waited for the time limit to expire. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.27]
*
* New features timeout now supports the --verbose option to diagnose forced termination.
*
* Improvements dd now supports iflag=direct with arbitrary sized files on all file systems. tail --bytes=NUM will efficiently seek to the end of block devices, rather than reading from the start. Utilities which do not support long options (other than the default --help and --version), e.g. cksum and sleep, now use more consistent error diagnostic for unknown long options.
*

* Thu Jul 09 2015 pthAATTsuse.de- Update to 8.24:
*
* Bug fixes
* dd supports more robust SIGINFO/SIGUSR1 handling for outputting statistics. Previously those signals may have inadvertently terminated the process.
* df --local no longer hangs with inaccessible remote mounts. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.21]
* du now silently ignores all directory cycles due to bind mounts. Previously it would issue a warning and exit with a failure status. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.1 and partially fixed in coreutils-8.23]
* chroot again calls chroot(DIR) and chdir(\"/\"), even if DIR is \"/\". This handles separate bind mounted \"/\" trees, and environments depending on the implicit chdir(\"/\"). [bugs introduced in coreutils-8.23]
* cp no longer issues an incorrect warning about directory hardlinks when a source directory is specified multiple times. Now, consistent with other file types, a warning is issued for source directories with duplicate names, or with -H the directory is copied again using the symlink name.
* factor avoids writing partial lines, thus supporting parallel operation. [the bug dates back to the initial implementation]
* head, od, split, tac, tail, and wc no longer mishandle input from files in /proc and /sys file systems that report somewhat-incorrect file sizes.
* mkdir --parents -Z now correctly sets the context for the last component, even if the parent directory exists and has a different default context. [bug introduced with the -Z restorecon functionality in coreutils-8.22]
* numfmt no longer outputs incorrect overflowed values seen with certain large numbers, or with numbers with increased precision. [bug introduced when numfmt was added in coreutils-8.21]
* numfmt now handles leading zeros correctly, not counting them when settings processing limits, and making them optional with floating point. [bug introduced when numfmt was added in coreutils-8.21]
* paste no longer truncates output for large input files. This would happen for example with files larger than 4GiB on 32 bit systems with a \'\
\' character at the 4GiB position. [the bug dates back to the initial implementation]
* rm indicates the correct number of arguments in its confirmation prompt, on all platforms. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.22]
* shuf -i with a single redundant operand, would crash instead of issuing a diagnostic. [bug introduced in coreutils-8.22]
* tail releases inotify resources when unused. Previously it could exhaust resources with many files, or with -F if files were replaced many times. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.5]
* tail -f again follows changes to a file after it\'s renamed. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.5]
* tail --follow no longer misses changes to files if those files were replaced before inotify watches were created. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.5]
* tail --follow consistently outputs all data for a truncated file. [bug introduced in the beginning]
* tail --follow=name correctly outputs headers for multiple files when those files are being created or renamed. [bug introduced in coreutils-7.5]
*
* New features
* chroot accepts the new --skip-chdir option to not change the working directory to \"/\" after changing into the chroot(2) jail, thus retaining the current wor- king directory. The new option is only permitted if the new root directory is the old \"/\", and therefore is useful with the --group and --userspec options.
* dd accepts a new status=progress level to print data transfer statistics on stderr approximately every second.
* numfmt can now process multiple fields with field range specifications similar to cut, and supports setting the output precision with the --format option.
* split accepts a new --separator option to select a record separator character other than the default newline character.
* stty allows setting the \"extproc\" option where supported, which is a useful setting with high latency links.
* sync no longer ignores arguments, and syncs each specified file, or with the - -file-system option, the file systems associated with each specified file.
* tee accepts a new --output-error option to control operation with pipes and output errors in general.
*
* Changes in behavior
* df no longer suppresses separate exports of the same remote device, as these are generally explicitly mounted. The --total option does still suppress duplicate remote file systems. [suppression was introduced in coreutils-8.21]
* mv no longer supports moving a file to a hardlink, instead issuing an error. The implementation was susceptible to races in the presence of multiple mv instances, which could result in both hardlinks being deleted. Also on case insensitive file systems like HFS, mv would just remove a hardlinked \'file\' if called like `mv file File`. The feature was added in coreutils-5.0.1.
* numfmt --from-unit and --to-unit options now interpret suffixes as SI units, and IEC (power of 2) units are now specified by appending \'i\'.
* tee will exit early if there are no more writable outputs.
* tee does not treat the file operand \'-\' as meaning standard output any longer, for better conformance to POSIX. This feature was added in coreutils-5.3.0.
* timeout --foreground no longer sends SIGCONT to the monitored process, which was seen to cause intermittent issues with GDB for example.
*
* Improvements
* cp,install,mv will convert smaller runs of NULs in the input to holes, and cp --sparse=always avoids speculative preallocation on XFS for example.
* cp will read sparse files more efficiently when the destination is a non regular file. For example when copying a disk image to a device node.
* mv will try a reflink before falling back to a standard copy, which is more efficient when moving files across BTRFS subvolume boundaries.
* stat and tail now know about IBRIX. stat -f --format=%T now reports the file system type, and tail -f uses polling for files on IBRIX file systems.
* wc -l processes short lines much more efficiently.

* Tue May 12 2015 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Download keyring file from Savannah; prefer HTTPS over FTP for remote sources.
* Tue May 12 2015 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Fix memory handling error with case insensitive sort using UTF-8 (boo#928749): coreutils-i18n.patch src/sort.c (keycompare_mb): Ensure the buffer is big enough to handle anything output from wctomb(). Theoretically any input char could be converted to multiple output chars, and so we need to multiply the storage by MB_CUR_MAX.
* Tue Apr 07 2015 crrodriguezAATTopensuse.org- If coreutils changes, for consistency, we must regenerate the initrd.
* Thu Apr 02 2015 mpluskalAATTsuse.com- Add gpg signature
* Thu Mar 26 2015 rguentherAATTsuse.com- For openSUSE > 13.2 drop coreutils-build-timeout-as-pie.patch and instead add a BuildRequire for gcc-PIE.
* Thu Feb 05 2015 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- coreutils-tests-aarch64-env.patch: Add patch to avoid false positive failures of the coreutils-testsuite on OBS/aarch64: work around execve() reversing the order of \"env\" output.
* Mon Jan 19 2015 mailAATTbernhard-voelker.de- Add upstream patches for df(1) from upstream, thus aligning with SLES12:
