I am ready to release diffutils-3.8, but in order to get it to compile
warning-free with configure's --enable-gcc-warnings and GCC 11.2.1, I
had to push another -fanalyze-pacification patch to regex_internal.c,
just minutes ago. Given that this made diffutils pull in gnulib
changes since the snapshot of two weeks ago, I considered first
creating another snapshot. But nothing recent seems particularly
risky, so I'll probably go ahead with the release today. At worst,
I'll make another release in a week or two.

But first, does anyone have anything pending that I should be sure to include?

Thanks,
Jim

I've recently been improving some GCC-based static analysis in Gnulib, 
and syncing from Gnulib to diffutils meant that you have a bit of a 
work-in-progress there. I plan to make further such changes soon.

The Gnulib work already installed is conservative and I see no harm in 
releasing what we've got in diffutils now. I'm sending this email mainly 
to give you a heads-up that more Gnulib changes are coming.

FWIW attached are the diffutils patches I have so far. They assume the 
abovementioned Gnulib work-in-progress and this should not be installed 
in diffutils yet. Most likely more minor diffutils patches will be 
needed once I've finished the Gnulib changes I have in mind.

Until today I've been using the Gnulib work-in-progress on grep rather 
than on diffutils. I've found one memory leak there and hope to find 
more bugs - after all, that's the point of all this. I didn't find any 
diffutils bugs in my brief run-through today.

No problem, of course.

Good. Thanks again.

One minor problem I just discovered with the now-released diffutils 3.8, 
a problem that was caused by my recent Gnulib changes, is that building 
diffutils on RHEL 8.4 results in diagnostics like the following:

In file included from dirname.c:25:
xalloc.h:133:3: warning: 'malloc (rpl_free)' attribute ignored on 
functions declared 'inline' [-Wattributes]
   133 |   _GL_ATTRIBUTE_ALLOC_SIZE ((1, 2)) _GL_ATTRIBUTE_RETURNS_NONNULL;
       |   ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


These diagnostics are annoying but otherwise harmless. I just now 
installed a Gnulib patch to fix this, here:

Thanks. I won't wait 2.5 years for the next release :-)
