30.4.2 Reporting bugs or incorrect results
If you suspect a bug in GNU coreutils’ version sort (i.e., in the
output of ‘
ls -v’ or ‘
sort -V’), please first check the following:
- Is the result consistent with Debian’s own ordering (using
dpkg, see Comparing two strings using Debian's algorithm) ? If it is, then this is not a bug - please do not report it.
- If the result differs from Debian’s, is it explained by one of the sections in Differences from the official Debian Algorithm? If it is, then this is not a bug - please do not report it.
- If you have a question about specific ordering which is not explained here, please write to [email protected], and provide a concise example that will help us diagnose the issue.
- If you still suspect a bug which is not explained by the above, please write to [email protected] with a concrete example of the suspected incorrect output, with details on why you think it is incorrect.
