Hello,

Coverity has published its "Coverity Scan Spotlight Python" a couple
of hours ago. It features a summary of Python's ecosystem, an
interview with me about Python core development and a defect report.
The report is awesome. We have reached a defect density of .005
defects per 1,000 lines of code. In 2012 the average defect density of
Open Source Software was 0.69.

The internet likes it, too.

Thank you very much to Kristin Brennan and Dakshesh Vyas from Coverity
as well as everybody who has helped to fix the remaining issues!
