FYI, I submitted NUT to the Coverity Scan program
(http://scan.coverity.com) last september.
3 pings later, I still have no news, nor at least a first contact!
maybe some of you may want to second that request?

don't hesitate to complete the QA document:
(generated from docs/nut-qa.txt)

I would really like to see the static code analysis subject addressed.

Arjen, have you compared / tried other systems like Frama-C, BLAST or Clang?

before investing in one system or another (which is part of 2.8), I
would like to have a clear picture of the situation.
