textutils - GNU text file processing utilities ChangeLog


# fileutils, sh-utils, and textutils have all been combined into coreutils.
# Unless you specifically need to use the individual old packages, you should
# move to coreutils instead of installing/upgrading textutils.

# I haven't used textutils in a long time, if you find anything broken in
# here, let me know (e-mail link is at the bottom).
