| The code analysis tools vendor, Coverity, has released the 
| 2009 edition of the Coverity Scan Open Source

| initiated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 
| 2006, examines the integrity and quality of open source 
| software. The results are based on an analysis of 11 
| billion lines of code from 280 open source projects 
| including Firefox, Linux, PHP, Ruby and Samba over three 
| years. The analysis was carried out using Coverity's Scan 
| service.
