I ran glibc 2.22 through coverity's open source scanner after
finding that it did a good job on some RHEL 6 analysis work I was
doing (caught two serious malloc issues).
My eventual goal is to automate the analysis as part of our CI
efforts with the build bots.
You can see the project here:
My notes on the process are here:
The scan results should be available to the public, but require
a github or coverity account to be created. If you don't like this
I think I can share the emailed results, or have them forwarded to
a mailing list for every scan.
The initial project was created by James E. King, III. James and
I have talked about how to make use of this resources, and I'm
going to add this testing as an optional step to the release
Paul Eggert has already filed several bugs related to the coverity
scan (BZ #18868, #18871, #18872, #18873). Some of these bugs are
real, while others are just lameness on our part.
Thoughts and comments welcome.
