At this point in time, Coverity's intention is only to make the
results viewable to members of the project.

Please don't bug them for access - they're donating this service to
the project, and I don't want to see it go away!

Coverity is considering whether to open up results to a larger audience,
but keep in mind that they have to use their corporate resources
appropriately, and it's up to them to determine what benefit they would
get from using staff time to administer accounts for the general public,
and the hardware and bandwidth needed to serve larger numbers of browsers.

Keep in mind also that TNF signed an NDA in order to get access. While
not stated in the NDA, my understanding is that Coverity wishes to protect
some aspects of the technology from their competitors, and wide-open
public access to the reports could conflict with that goal.
