One possible (sub)project would be to extend the existing support for the
clang static-analyzer. It is usable, but very rough at the moment, since
it uses the console output only. Run "make analyze" e.g. in src/bin/cat to
try. One major improvement would be to add JSON compilation database
support to the NetBSD build system (both src/share/mk for userland and
src/sys/conf for the kernel) and hook it up with analyze-build from the
clang tools. This would allow generating e.g. HTML reports, which are
much easier to understand as they show the code path leading to the
conclusion. It also allows using other tools that want a JSON
compilation database as input, e.g. devel/woboq_codebrowser. An old
proof of concept can be found in
and can be used as starting point.
