==================================================================

Here is the GNU diffutils home page:
    http://gnu.org/s/diffutils/

For a summary of changes and contributors, see:
  http://git.sv.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=diffutils.git;a=shortlog;h=v3.10
or run this command from a git-cloned diffutils directory:
  git shortlog v3.9..v3.10

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature:
  https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/diffutils/diffutils-3.10.tar.xz
  https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/diffutils/diffutils-3.10.tar.xz.sig

Use a mirror for higher download bandwidth:
  https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/diffutils/diffutils-3.10.tar.xz
  https://ftpmirror.gnu.org/diffutils/diffutils-3.10.tar.xz.sig

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

  c16a9cf107ad1f0f791b6d00852dc5e961c1c451  diffutils-3.10.tar.xz
  kOXpPMck5OvhLt6A3xY0Bjx6hVaSaFkZv+YLVWyb0J4=  diffutils-3.10.tar.xz

Verify the base64 SHA256 checksum with cksum -a sha256 --check
from coreutils-9.2 or OpenBSD's cksum since 2007.

Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify diffutils-3.10.tar.xz.sig

The signature should match the fingerprint of the following key:

  pub   rsa4096/0x7FD9FCCB000BEEEE 2010-06-14 [SCEA]
        Key fingerprint = 155D 3FC5 00C8 3448 6D1E  EA67 7FD9 FCCB 000B EEEE
  uid                   [ unknown] Jim Meyering <jim@meyering.net>
  uid                   [ unknown] Jim Meyering <meyering@fb.com>
  uid                   [ unknown] Jim Meyering <meyering@gnu.org>

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to retrieve
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  gpg --locate-external-key jim@meyering.net

  gpg --recv-keys 7FD9FCCB000BEEEE

  wget -q -O- 'https://savannah.gnu.org/project/release-gpgkeys.php?group=diffutils&download=1' | gpg --import -

As a last resort to find the key, you can try the official GNU
keyring:

  wget -q https://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnu-keyring.gpg
  gpg --keyring gnu-keyring.gpg --verify diffutils-3.10.tar.xz.sig

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.72c.20-9c018
  Automake 1.16i
  Gnulib v0.1-6209-g5d2fe2472f
