[ANNOUNCEMENT] Test: coreutils 9.0 (TEST)
Tue Jul 19 17:07:14 GMT 2022
Setup still shows coreutils 9.1 as test, but it should *NOT* be
installed by anyone.
Setup now also shows coreutils 9.0 in test, and it can and should be

As coreutils is a Base package, in Setup, select View Up To Date, Search
for coreutils, New column shows Keep, select the combo box dropdown
menu, which shows selections:
Skip [greyed out]
✔ Keep [checked]
you can select 9.0 which will install the suggested test release when
Setup is run.
*NO* Cygwin processes can be running when Setup is running, to ensure
programs can be replaced without restarting Windows or rerunning Setup.
