Bug#503730: ITP: cppcheck -- Simple syntax checking of C/C++ code.
Owner: Reijo Tomperi <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Package name : cppcheck
Version : 1.24.0
Upstream Author : Daniel Marjamäki <email@example.com>
URL : https://sourceforge.net/projects/cppcheck
License : GPL 3
Programming Lang: C++
Description : Simple syntax checking of C/C++ code.
I would like to create a new package and become a maintainer
Intended to complement the checking of the compiler.
Checks for: memory leaks, mismatching allocation-deallocation,
buffer overrun, and many more.
Cppcheck has currently found previously unknown bugs e.g. from the Linux
kernel, Filezilla, PostgreSQL, KDE, Apache server, PHP6 and other projects.
- I have never been a package maintainer before, but I did read a
manual about it and was able to create the package with only 2 lintian
warnings left, which are about this bug report. I also got approval
from the package maintainer.
- The current version of cppcheck (1.24) lacks license information
(fixed in the latest svn version), so I will be requesting a new
release from the upstream author before making the actual package.
