Re: Introducing the "Debian's Automated Code Analysis" (DACA) project

* Raphael Geissert <geissert@debian.org>, 2010-12-16, 12:00:
Automated Code Analysis helps detect and fix bugs and other issues in source code. The project aims to give users easy access to a wide variety of tools to improve quality of software distributed by Debian, while giving the tool's developers a test bed, more visibility, and more feedback. This is achieved by running those tools on the complete Debian archive.

Sounds great, thanks for your work on this!

the list of tools to be evaluated and possibly included goes over twenty.

Do you have any particular tools in mind?

Most of the tools are CPU-bound, limiting considerably the number of tools and time it takes to check the whole Debian archive. For example, with the typical sid repository update (i.e. not during the freeze and with a working ftp-master) it is impossible for the server running cppcheck to keep up with all the changes.

I don't see this as a big problem. I'd find DACA useful even if test results were updated, say, monthly.
