Cooperative Bug Isolation for Fedora 13

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 behaviour while they run, and report back how
they work (or how they fail to work) in the hands of 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.

We currently offer instrumented versions of Evolution, The GIMP, GNOME
Panel, Gnumeric, Liferea, Nautilus, Pidgin, Rhythmbox, and SPIM.
Download at <http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/>. We support
PackageManager, yum, apt, and many other RPM updater tools; see
<http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/repo-config.html> for customized
configuration help for any of our supported distributions and updater
tools. Or just download and install
<http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/rpm/fedora-13-i386/RPMS.tools/cbi-package-config-13-10.i686.rpm>
to automatically configure most popular RPM updaters to use the CBI
repository.

It’s that easy! Tell your friends! Tell your neighbours! 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.
