Cooperative Bug Isolation for FC6
Posted on: 10/30/2006 10:24 PM

The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) is now available for Fedora Core 6. 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 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, Gaim, The GIMP,
GNOME Panel, Gnumeric, Nautilus, Rhythmbox, and SPIM. Download at
lt;http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/gt;. We support yum, apt, and many other RPM updater tools; see lt;http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/repo-config.htmlgt; for customized configuration help for any of our supported distributions and updater tools. Or just download and install
lt;http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/rpm/fedora-6-i386/RPMS.tools/cbi-package-config-6-4.i386.rpmgt; to automatically configure most popular RPM updaters to use the CBI repository.

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 Fedora Core 1/2/4/5 too. When and if you decide to upgrade to FC6, we'll be ready for you. Until then, your participation remains valuable!
