The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI) is now available for Fedora 
7.  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, The GIMP, GNOME 
Panel, Gnumeric, Nautilus, Pidgin, 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 1/2/4/5/6 as well.  When and 
if you decide to upgrade to Fedora 7, we'll be ready for you.  Until 
then, your participation remains valuable!
