I recently added Automated Coverity runs. We haven't figured out how to
scrape the coverity website and turn it into open information. I have
the data they have but it isn't enough to be actionable. If you have some
creative ideas here, it would be great.

Coverity is being run once a day if needed so that side of automating is

You should ask about Code Style Checking in thread by itself. Sebastian
has made progress with one formatter and there needs to be an evaluation
of how much source code can be run through that reformatter unchanged.
If it changes anything, is this an adjustment to match our style or
we want to accept as a necessary evil of using the formatter.

When we have a combination or either accepting their format changes and
ideal configuration settings, carefully working through the source owned
by the RTEMS Project is the next step.

And then figuring out how to make it a part of the development process
and patch review.

This should have a lot of work and have a good impact on the project.

I am not the Python expert to comment on this. I think there has been
acceptance that some code needs to be Python2 and some can be
Python3. I think we may have agreed on Python style (to some extent)
so the previous style project has similar work here.

But pytest support is an unknown to me.

This would be good one to start a new thread with so the Python
experts from RTEMS speak up.

There is probably more work in the latter two.
