This is from http://bugzilla.moblin.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3476

At Intel we have access to the static code analysis tool Klocwork. I found
Klocwork to be very useful. It nicely complements run-time error checking with

There are some concerns that using a closed source tool in an open source
project isn't fair to the community because they don't have access to it. I
agree to some extend: it's not fair to complain to someone about warnings that
he couldn't have found without access to the tool.

Some people reject closed source tools based on principles.

But I think improving the code quality by developing patches with the help of
such a tool is fair game. Synthesis would very much appreciate it if we did

Klocwork works best if integrated into the development process, in other words,
is used regularly. It does produce false positives which have to be identified
once, but only once when reusing the same Klocwork setup.

Perhaps this is something to be integrated into the nightly testing which I
intend to set up on an Intel-internal server.
