Hi Michael,

I think we could do this using travis-ci.


travis can be directly connected to the github mirror and then we set
up a coverity job as covered in this doc.

It wouldn't even need to be configured to build - just run the coverity
scan. I'd be happy to investigate this, but I'd need admin permissions
on github to configure travis integration.
