Cooperative Bug Isolation for Fedora Core 5



After a truly embarrassing delay, I am pleased to announce that the Cooperative Bug Isolation Project is now available for Fedora Core 5. We currently offer the following instrumented applications:

  - Evolution 2.6.2
  - Gaim 1.5.0
  - The GIMP 2.2.11
  - Gnumeric 1.6.3
  - Nautilus 2.14.1
  - Rhythmbox 0.9.4.1
  - SPIM 7.2.1

Download at <http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/downloads/>. We support 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.

What's that? You say you've never heard of the Cooperative Bug Isolation Project (CBI)? Get with it! CBI is an ongoing, award-winning (http://campus.acm.org/public/pressroom/press_releases/3_2006/liblit.cfm) research effort exploring ways to find bugs and improve the quality of open source software using lightweight instrumentation, automated feedback, and sophisticated machine learning algorithms. Check us out at <http://www.cs.wisc.edu/cbi/> for more information. CBI needs *you*! The more data we get, the more bugs we can find!

Even if you've never written a line of code in your life, you can help just by installing and using our specially instrumented builds of software you use every day.

For those of you still on Fedora Core 1/2/4, we offer a limited selection of packages for those distributions too. When and if you decide to upgrade to FC5, we'll be ready for you. Until then, your participation remains valuable!
