The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) is now available for Fedora
16. CBI (http://research.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
We currently offer instrumented versions of Evolution, The GIMP, GNOME
Panel, Gnumeric, Liferea, Nautilus, Pidgin, Rhythmbox, and SPIM.

;. Or just
download and install
to automatically configure your system 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 earlier releases as well, going all the
way back to Fedora 1. When and if you decide to upgrade to Fedora 16,
we'll be ready for you. Until then, your participation remains valuable
even on older distributions.
