NASA's PathFinder opensourced

Incredible - software for finding bugs developed by experts for space research is available to everybody and everybody can look at its code.
Can we use it for testing NetBeans? That could safe a lot of work to developers ;), testers etc. and as a bonus the product will be bugless :)

Strange things, the articles about the PathFinder aren't consistent. I'm not sure if it's opensourced or not...
04/26/05: It is done! JavaPathFinder is not just open sourced, but becomes the first NASA program to be actively developed and hosted on SourceForge. Congrats to all of us! Here is the link to the official press release
- from http://javapathfinder.sourceforge.net/

NASA scientists today announced they are releasing free software that will find 'bugs,' or defects, in Java computer code.
The new software, Java Pathfinder, is classified as 'open source software.'

True is out there - who know's where....
