This description of the Y2K readiness of GNU software packages is a Year 2000 Readiness Disclosure as defined in the Year 2000 Information and Readiness Disclosure Act. This description of our software compliance is for informational purposes only. It does not constitute a guaranty, warranty, representation, or contract of any sort between you and the FSF or other copyright holders of these GNU software packages. Under no circumstance will the copyright holders of these GNU software packages or the FSF be liable to you for any damages or claims based upon the information contained herein.
The information given below has been provided by Koos Schut working as a volunteer. The FSF is not the source of the information and has not verified or tested the accuracy of the evaluations; all the information has been brought here from Koos Schut's Y2K web page with his help.
To make this list more useful, two things are very welcome. First: if you have any year-2000 information of GNU packages of which the year-2000 status is not known in this list, please share it with Koos Schut. Second: if you have independently-derived year-2000 information, please share that with Koos Schut, too, since two different checks are much more reliable than one.
There is no year-2000 information avalable on packages which are not mentioned in this list.
Tested for date-rollover to 2000-01-01 and 2000-02-29
Tests the remote's
touch command for a way to
specify 20xx timestamps
xc/doc/specs/PEX5/SI/pex.macros Something here produces the year 19100. There is a patch which involves some cryptic typing for me (receiving patches in Windhoos-mail and trying to get them past firewalls and things does not seem to work).
Please send FSF & GNU inquiries & questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. There are also other ways to contact the FSF.
Please send comments on these web pages to email@example.com, send other questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
