fix branch names with the prefix “hotfix/“ because as the per convention it’s for already
released versions and for serious production issues. Instead, I recommend that we can either
go with “feature/CID-XXXX” as all features should have bug ids and bugfixes should have
them too.

Feature sounds a bit strange to me for bugs coming out of static code analysis. Typically
they are bugs in released versions (unless we really fix the lot of them ;-) ) The seriousness
is up for debate and varies issue by issue.

like “bugfix/1234” so we don’t even have to add the "CLOUDSTACK-“ prefix and it’s
more readable. The commits though should have the full name “CLOUDSTACK-xxx” to be picked
up by ASFBot.

These are not jira issues, but coverity issues. ASFbot doesn’t now about them.  They are
for now manually tracked in the coverity interface.
