Coverity and pkgsrc
I've found this interesting
about Coverity and pkgsrc via the
NetBSD News Beat and the
DragonFly BSD Digest,
``[...] Coverity has chosen to use pkgsrc (www.pkgsrc.org) as a
framework for building and scanning software. Pkgsrc makes it easier for
anyone, including Coverity, to build free software.''
There's also another interesting part that hints that pkgsrc
could gain more users by persuing that user community:
``It happens that
pkgsrc is running a little behind and still has 0.63 as its basis. I will
try to get a more recent version in pkgsrc (in particular because new code
is more likely to contain error, ego notwithstanding), but from looking at
the scan, it's clear many of these bugs remain in the current codebase.''
