As an upstream (wine) that uses Coverity, I'm curious how we can get
this sort of feature in the free tier. From what I can tell Coverity
just periodically scans our git tree periodically and produces a list of
We have a testbot that scans incoming patches (submitted via mailing
list) to measure new defects: in Wine's case this is defined as tests
that fail on one of the bot VMs, but if I could invoke coverity directly
it could in principle scan an arbitrary patchset.
Do I need to setup some elaborate system of making a new git branch with
the incoming patch set and then automatically asking coverity to scan
that branch? Or can it be manually invoked with arbitrary patches?
