Cooperative Bug Isolation project on Fedora Core 2

Ben Liblit writes "The Cooperative Bug Isolation Project is a joint effort by UC Berkeley and Stanford to bring debugging into the Internet age. Instrumented applications send feedback to our analysis center, where we use statistical debugging techniques to learn what goes wrong when the software crashes.

The project is pleased to announce that the following instrumented applications are available for Fedora Core 2:

  • Evolution 1.4.6
  • Gaim 1.0.0
  • The GIMP 2.0.5
  • Nautilus 2.6.0
  • Rhythmbox 0.8.7 (includes iPod & Dashboard support!)
  • SPIM 7.0

What we need most of all are more runs from 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. Read more, download some packages, and join in!

Fedora Core 1 users can help too: see the downloads page for comparable versions of all of the above applications for FC1."
