Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi folks,

Eric Blake no longer seems to have free time available for Cygwin 
package upgrades, so I would like to offer to co-maintain coreutils and 
provide upgrades as they are now five years old.

I would like to provide an upgrade to the final version 8 release 8.32, 
initially as a TEST release, before working on the latest release 9.1.

Package sources and archives are available online at:

and builds in playground from:;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/playground

The jobs appear to fail because some checks fail and return non-zero 
status. Comparing checks between ciurrent and proposed releases and 
across x86/_64/CI jobs, there appear to be fewer failures despite more 

All feedback is encouraged and gratefully received.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
