I have uploaded coreutils-5.2.1-4.

This package superseeds the packages fileutils, sh-utils and textutils.

Changes since 5.2.1-3:

- cat(1) got a simplified binary/text logic which always creates the
  output file in the same mode as its underlying mount point.  Thanks
  to Pierre Humblet for this patch.

- du(1) returns the correct block count.

- od(1) always opens input files in binary mode.

Important note:

I'm releasing this package only because nobody else did so far and this
already took too long.  I'm not at all interested to stay coreutils
maintainer for a long time.  Along the same line, I'm not going to discuss
the way I packed this package.  If anybody dislikes the way this package
is packed, consider to take over maintainership.

If anybody wants to take over maintainership, (s)he's more than welcome.
