On Friday, I was finally able to get a FULL valid Coverity scan of our source code! If you're interested in helping resolve the 1892 issues detected, please reply back in private with a username and e-mail address ASAP (i.e., today!).
PLEASE don't bother replying if you're only interested in looking at results or poking around. I'm wanting to put together a small team that is intent on actually fixing all of the issues reported over the next few months (after the new build system is integrated).
For an interesting preview of some of the kinds of things reported, here are some screenshots...
... showing a potential (albeit unlikely) NULL dereference:
... showing secure coding practice suggestions:
... showing pretty awesome detection of a potentially uninitialized variable use:
Those and the other 1889 issues are all managed through the Coverity website which is only accessible if you have an account. If you're going to help, fantastic. Send me username/e-mail address and hopefully we'll have accounts made later this week.
