Bug#503730: ITP: cppcheck -- Simple syntax checking of C/C++ code.

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Reijo Tomperi <aggro80@users.sourceforge.net>

  Package name    : cppcheck
  Version         : 1.24.0
  Upstream Author : Daniel Marjamäki <hyd_danmar@users.sourceforge.net>
  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
for it.

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. 

Additional information:
- 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.

-- System Information:
Debian Release: lenny/sid

  APT policy: (500, 'testing')
