My name is Andrey and I work in OOO “Program Verification Systems”. We develop the PVS-Studio static code analyzer for C/C++/C++11. I am C/C++ developer and I know from my experience that it is very difficult to write code and check it. To make these processes easier static code analyzers were developed, for example, PVS-Studio. In this article, Static Analysis of Wireshark by PVS-Studio, I wrote about some easily fixing errors. I really hope if PVS-Studio can make Wireshark safer.

I want to thank Wireshark team of developers for the good product.

If you could run it on top of trunk that would be even more useful for us.

If you could donate a free license to the Wireshark developers, that would be even more useful ;-)

Note that the master branch can be built using cmake to produce a Visual Studio solution in case that's easier to use for PVS-Studio.

+1 for a free licence to use on our buildbots.

Or provide a service similar to what Coverity provides with Coverity Scan.
