Hi all,

Recently, I receive from Laurent Montel a set of traces about source code
analys done with a tool named Coverty Report.


This tool, which is not open-source have been aquired by Red Hat to check
all implementation include will whole projects from the distro. RH has
started to analyse KDE source code, and especially digiKam. I sorted huge
trace to remove unsuitable parts and cut digiKam, kipi-plugins, and
extralibs reports in separated files. All files are there :


Coverty check if all class members are initialized in constructors, if data
or members are used before to be initialized, and if data are used after to
be free from memory. The error list found in reports are listed in this PDF:


Where sometime reports are not really understable, i found some
bugs discovered during source code analyse...

I recommend highly to read all report and to fix source code relevant. The
analyse have been done against digiKam 3.0.0-RC tarball source code.

I already started to check digiKam source code and fixed some entries. I
recommend to all developers to do the same quickly.

Thanks in advance
