I'm not, all the info was taken from either setup or setup.ini.
I'd like to install a 9.x version of coreutils, but I still see only
the 8.32 release, even when switching the setup view to FULL, and
trying various [X} TEST checkboxes and other selections.

These are the versions listed in today's setup.ini.  Not sure of the
options in setup to install 9.0-1 since I saw in another message that
9.1-1 is not recommended, perhaps that has changed by now?

replace-versions: 9.1-1
version: 8.32-1
install: x86_64/release/coreutils/coreutils-8.32-1.tar.xz 2748892
version: 8.26-2
install: x86_64/release/coreutils/coreutils-8.26-2.tar.xz 2689212
version: 9.0-1
install: x86_64/release/coreutils/coreutils-9.0-1.tar.xz 2767296
