[20070504] Coverity and pkgsrc
I've found this interesting report about Coverity and pkgsrc via the NetBSD News Beat and the DragonFly BSD Digest, telling that ``[...] Coverity has chosen to use pkgsrc ( 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.''
