I followed the links to the coverity page that shows their table of
errors found, and subsequently fixed in tools used for the LAMP stack.
They say that they informed the maintainers of the software about the
precise errors found and the number of errors has been tracked since
then.

It seems there page has been updated with the results of the latest
Python release o i thought I'd put a marketing spin on the data to show
which projects have been fixing their bugs.
I added the column showing % bugs fixed and sorted on that column to
highlight just what you Python maintainers have achieved:
