Hello folks,

We are planning to reduce coverity errors to improve upstream stability.

To avoid duplicate efforts and concerns like patch review, we suggest
following rules :-

1. Visit https://scan.coverity.com/projects/gluster-glusterfs and
request to "Add me to project" to see all reported coverity errors.

2. Pick any error and assign to yourself in Triage -> Owner section,
it will let others know you are owner of that error and avoid
duplicate efforts.
In Triage-> Ext. Reference you can post patch link.
For example see -

3. You should pick coverity per component/file basis and fix all the
coverity errors reported for that component/file.
If some file has few defects it is advisable to combine errors from
same component. This will help the reviewers to quickly review the
For example see -

4. Please use BUG : 789278 to send all coverity related patch and do
not forget to mention coverity link in commit message.
For example see-

5. After the patch is merged please make entry of coverity-ID in spreadsheet.

Yes ! You can win some swags by participating in this effort if you
meet these criteria:-

a. Triage the bugs properly.
b. Updating the sheets.
c. More than 17 coverity fixes.
d. Most importantly all the submitted patches should get merged by
25th Aug 2018.
