I looked at the link you supplied, but there is not much to see there other than some metrics
that are done in a way that I cannot reproduce. Why should we as an open source project be
interested in actively participating in this?

All our sourcecode is obviously available for anyone to examine, so I'm sure that anybody
who is interested in running it past the static analysis tools that Coverity has can do so.

Greetings, Marcel
