Hi all

The machine on which the coverity stuff is is old, both hw and OS.
the OS will no longer get security updates in a few months and the hw
does not always boot and its switched off most of the time.
and it has no other use anymore than running coverity. Ive tried
to find someone a while ago to take coverity testing over and i
thought timothy would maybe do it but he seems to not have had any
time to look into it ...
and de facto ive not run it regularly in the recent months.
So this is kinda a louder announcement that if you care about coverity
testing, you need to do something ...


PS: work would involve installing every optional dependancy of FFmpeg
(and keep them updated as needed)
and regularly either manually or automatically git pull, build with
the coverity tools and upload Its not a huge amount of work but it is
