[Python-Dev] About "Coverity Study Ranks LAMP Code Quality"

"Perl had a defect density of only 0.186. In comparison Python had a
defect density of 0.372 and PHP was actually above both the baseline and
LAMP averages at 0.474."

This is of course a PR stunt. But I'm wondering if the actual "bugs"
list was transmitted to Python developers, and verified / acted upon.

Because according to
http://www.washingtontechnology.com/news/1_1/daily_news/28134-1.html :

"The maintainers of the source codes can register with Coverity to see
the full results. (End users cannot see the bug lists themselves; they
will be able to see how buggy a particular program may be.)"
