Because of this I have been blocking updates to coreutils in Rawhide and
Fedora 39. and I'm running coreutils-9.2-4.fc39.x86_64.

This change in the -v option has been reverted in 9.4 (released
2023-08-29).  From [1]:

** Changes in behavior

  'cp -v' and 'mv -v' will no longer output a message for each file skipped
   due to -i, or -u.  Instead they only output this information with
   I.e., 'cp -u -v' etc. will have the same verbosity as before

If it's too late to get 9.4 into 39, is it possible to locally include
this specific reverting patch?


I personally agree that this is enough of a change to warrant consideration for Fedora 39, but I want Fedora QA to weigh in. At this point we have beta and final blockers and you can use this form to propose one:

If you want some help filing this proposal or the process, I am happy to answer questions here or in chat. I am dcantrell on IRC and in Matrix chat.
