The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) is now available for Fedora
13. CBI (http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/
) is an ongoing research effort to
find and fix bugs in the real world. We distribute specially modified
versions of popular open source software packages. These special
versions monitor their own behavior while they run, and report back how
they work (or how they fail to work) in the hands of real users like

help make things better for everyone simply by using our special
We currently offer instrumented versions of Evolution, The GIMP, GNOME
Panel, Gnumeric, Liferea, Nautilus, Pidgin, Rhythmbox, and SPIM.

PackageManager, yum, apt, and many other RPM updater tools; see
configuration help for any of our supported distributions and updater

It's that easy! Tell your friends! Tell your neighbors! The more of
you there are, the more bugs we can find.
We still offer CBI packages for earlier releases as well, going all the
way back to Fedora 1. When and if you decide to upgrade to Fedora 13,
we'll be ready for you. Until then, your participation remains valuable
even on older distributions.
