Hello Kei,

Kei Kebreau <address@hidden> skribis:

Could you give a bit more context?  On which branch does this failure

If the unit tests of the ‘acl’ package check the output of ‘ls’, then
there’s a circular dependency issue between Coreutils and ACL.  I would
argue that it’s up to Coreutils to test its ‘ls’ command, but in the
meantime, we could patch ACL to skip its ‘ls’ test.

Is this what you were asking?  :-)
