In GNU coreutils, we now get this warning during bootstrap:

  Notice from module diacrit:
    This module is deprecated. Use the module 'uninorm/canonical-decomposition' 

And indeed, the 'diacrit' module is still in use by 1 source:

  $ GIT_PAGER= git grep -En 'todiac|tobase'
  src/ptx.c:1053:          diacritic = todiac (character);
  src/ptx.c:1056:              base = tobase (character);
  src/ptx.c:1338:        edited_flag[character] = todiac (character) != 0;

Have a nice day,
