-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I've uploaded coreutils-6.12-1, a new upstream release, only to the
release-2 area. In response to previous messages on this list, cp -rp
uses futimens and utimensat rather than futimesat, and id no longer
truncates group lists when given no user id (both upstream changes).
* Noteworthy changes in release 6.12 (2008-05-31) [stable]
** 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  ) 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
** Changes in behavior
~ install once again sets SELinux context, when possible
~ [it was deliberately disabled in 6.9.90]
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
