 coreutils (6.10-3ubuntu1) hardy; urgency=low
   * Merge from Debian; remaining changes:
     - 60_ubuntu-force-clobber-specials.patch: Cause cp to replace special
       files when "-a -f" is specified, and the special already exists; instead
       of just erroring. (Reported upstream in
       Updated for 6.10.
     - debian/coreutils.preinst: Add bug numbers in comment.
 coreutils (6.10-3) unstable; urgency=low
   * [71] use getgrouplist to get list of groups, e.g., for id(1)
     (Closes: #459615)
   * [72] display warning if user is in too many groups
     (Closes: #175994)
   * [73] prevent segfault in ls -l /proc/sys/fs/inotify/
     (Thanks Jan Moringen) (Closes: #463043)
   * Try upstream fix for info references in man pages
     (Closes: #388684)
   * Upstream change in documentation for mv in the case of a
     moving a symlink to a directory with a trailing '/'
     (Closes: #343652)
   * move kill to /bin on hurd (Closes: #380387)
   * Fix some minor typos/formatting in debian packaging
   * Add link to upstream FAQ in README.Debian
 coreutils (6.10-2) unstable; urgency=low
   * run make check with VERBOSE enabled; this no longer makes the logs
     unreadably huge (thanks Julien Cristau for asking the obvious
   * print cpu info during build to help debug build failures
   * bump policy version
   * lose perl-base & bzip2 build-deps. Someday need to support lzma tarball
   * drop more legacy fileutils/shellutils/textutils upgrade support.
     hopefully people have finished upgrading to etch
 coreutils (6.10-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * new upstream release
     - cp, by default, refuses to copy through a dangling destination symlink
       Set POSIXLY_CORRECT if you require the old, risk-prone behavior.
 coreutils (6.10~20071127-1) experimental; urgency=low
   * new snapshot
   * coreutils now includes mktemp, but it is not included in this package
     because debian already has a mktemp package with similar syntax.
 coreutils (6.10~20070907-3) experimental; urgency=low
   * use correct upstream changelog
   * make su suid on hurd again (Closes: #439249)
 coreutils (6.10~20070907-2) experimental; urgency=low
   * forgot to add bison to build-deps
 coreutils (6.10~20070907-1) experimental; urgency=low
   * SELinux support has been integrated upstream. This may break things
     in the short term (I encourage SELinux users to test) but is
     expected to simplify coreutils development since the size of the
     debian diff is greatly reduced.
   * Bumped policy number
   * Killed off textutils/fileutils/shellutils transition packages
   * most debian patches are gone, except for whoips & dd appenderrors
     * may need some, like s390 no sha2, returned (see how autobuilds do)
