The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) is now available for Fedora 
Core 6.  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 
<>.  We support yum, apt, and many 
other RPM updater tools; see 
<> for customized 
configuration help for any of our supported distributions and updater 
tools.  Or just download and install 
to automatically configure most popular RPM updaters to use the CBI 

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!
