I somewhat disagree with that! Coverity uses the exposure in the public
for open source project to their benefit.
THEY will claim who usefull their software is (not that I disagree to
this statement), but it is really for their own benefit.
As they are selling and get the money.
We however might benefit, but it would really serve a learning purpose
(which is part of the open source idea) if the bug are discovered in full.
I kind of understand that excess traffic to their web-based interface is
difficult, but summary reports, that hightlight the
issues are possible and should be published in the relevant mailing lists.
