Hello Guido van Rossum,

Thank you for using Coverity Scan.
With more than 4000 open source projects now registered at Coverity Scan,
we are committed to help the open source community find quality and
security issues early in development.

We would like to inform you that you can now nominate your favorite defect!
Tell us which defects you are glad were found using Coverity Scan and get
special gifts like a Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch, Code Black Drone or Tile
for iOS and Android. Gifts will be distributed every month based on defect

We recently added new hardware resource and upgraded our Scan server to our
latest 7.6 version, which includes great new features:

* New security and quality checkers with version 7.6.
* You can now setup automatic approval for viewing defects in read-only
mode for everyone.
* See charts showing defects outstanding vs. fixed over a period of time,
and sort high impact defects by category.
* Support for standard SSL port 443 instead of 8443.
* Subscribe to email notifications for your entire open source project or
for specific components or modules within your project.
* You can now submit builds more frequently.
* Please download the latest Coverity Build tool from
* The old Coverity Build tool will still continue to work, but it may not
be able to find some security and quality defects that could be found using
our new and improved checkers as a part of 7.6 upgrade.

* Important note for projects that uses automation or a script to submit
build to Coverity Scan: The old URL to upload build on scan5.coverity.com
is no longer supported. It is applicable to and used by some of the old
projects on Coverity Scan.
* Please sign-in to Coverity Scan to find the updated URL under automation
section of Submit Build.
* Finally, don't forget to nominate your favorite defects to receive
special gifts like a Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch, Code Black Drone or Tile
for iOS and Android every month!
