Thanks for the report.  However you are reporting a bug in the time
project to the coreutils project.  Time and coreutils are two separate
projects.  GNU time doesn't use any bug trackers.  Therefore this bug
to the coreutils project will never be seen by the GNU time

The best reporting address for problems with time is the
address@hidden mailing list.  It isn't a good place.  It is
only the best place relative to any other reporting address.

The GNU time project has actually been quite dead for many, many
years.  However the official maintainer keeps saying that a new
release will happen every time he is asked.  Therefore the project
sits in a perpetual limbo betwixt and between.

In my opinion the best way to compile GNU time is to grab the patched
sources from one of the many software distributions.  I am the
maintainer for Debian and so my biased opinion would be to use the
Debian patched sources.  But most of the patches have been shared all
around by now and so any of the distros are likely very similar at
this stage.

I will continue the discussion in your other message to the discussion
list and then redirect it over to the bug-gnu-utils list.  Anyone who
wishes to join in please meet us over there.
