Drawing on over three years worth of the Coverity Scan data, we have prepared two annual reports covering many aspects of the Scan results and software metrics.
The Open Source Report 2008 includes new details about defect types identified in the Scan, and their frequencies. The report also covers progress made by the open source projects using Scan, and rates of false positive results identified by developers using Scan.
Since we also have statistics for all of the code built over the last two years, we have a large enough dataset to posit some interesting questions about software defects, size, and complexity.
The Open Source Report 2009 includes year over year changes seen since the 2008 report, and further in-depth analysis on a function by function basis, going beyond the aggregate project analysis done in 2008.
If you have any questions or would like to suggest additional projects to be added, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We anticipate a large amount of feedback on this report. We welcome suggestions for further future investigation as well.
