The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project is a joint effort by UC Berkeley 
and Stanford to bring debugging into the Internet age.  Instrumented 
applications send feedback to our analysis center, where we use 
statistical debugging techniques to learn what goes wrong when the 
software crashes.

The project is please to announce that the following instrumented 
applications are available for Fedora Core 2:

   - Evolution 1.4.6
   - Gaim 1.0.0
   - The GIMP 2.0.5
   - Nautilus 2.6.0
   - Rhythmbox 0.8.7 (includes iPod & Dashboard support!)
   - SPIM 7.0

What we need most of all are more runs from real users like you!  Even 
if you've never written a line of code in your life, you can help make 
things better for everyone simply by using our special bug-hunting 
packages.  Read more, download some packages, and join in!

Fedora Core 1 users can help too: see the downloads page for comparable 
versions of all of the above applications for FC1.
