Doc Type: Rebase: Bug Fixes and Enhancements
Doc Text:
Important: if this rebase instead contains *only bug fixes,* or *only enhancements*, select the correct option from the Doc Type drop-down list. Rebase package(s) to version: grep-2.20 Highlights, important fixes, or notable enhancements: Fixed several problems that can lead to crash. Speed-up for various operations, some operations can now be magnitude faster. Recursive grep now uses fts for directory traversal, so it can handle much-larger directories without reporting things like "File name too long", and it can run much faster when dealing with large directory hierarchies.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 19:24:12 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

grep-2.16-1.el7.x86_64 reproduces
grep-2.18-1.fc20.x86_64 reproduces

upstream grep-2.21 no longer reproduces the issue
