[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated [test]: grep-3.0-2




A new test release of grep, 3.0-2, has been uploaded and will soon reach
a mirror near you; leaving the current version at 3.0-1.

NEWS:
=====
This build modifies the behavior of grep to no longer force text mode on
binary-mounted file descriptors.  Since this includes pipelines by
default, this means that if you pipe text data through a pipeline (such
as the output of a windows program), you may need to insert a call to
d2u to sanitize your input before passing it to grep.  The impact of the
options 'grep -u' and 'grep -U' is now limited to just text-mounted file
descriptors.  These changes match what is being done in the experimental
sed-4.4-1 and gawk-4.1.4-3.  Presumably, all three programs will be
promoted to current once we decide if the policy of behaving more like
Linux on carriage returns in a binary mount makes sense.

For more details on grep, see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/grep/.

DESCRIPTION:
============
GNU Grep searches one or more input files for lines containing a match
to a specified patter.  By default, Grep outputs the matching lines.
The GNU implementation includes several useful extensions over POSIX.

UPDATE:
