Hi Thomas,

I have a coverity scan setup for Wget already[1]. I'll give you access
to it, if you send a request. I manually request a coverity scan every
few weeks. I've been meaning to set up an automated scan through my
mirror of Wget on GutHub, but never really got around to it. Daniel
Haxx, maintainer of Curl, has also kindly set up a (daily?) static
analysis of Wget using LLVM/Clang which is publicly accessible from:

However, the memory leaks I fixed were found by running the new Python
based test suite located in testenv/ through valgrind. I recently
merged the test suite into master and the README file as well as the
email contains information about running all the tests through
