             Summary: topic/jsiwek/coverity
                 Key: BIT-1085
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1085
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: BinPAC, Bro, Broccoli, broccoli-python, pysubnettree
    Affects Versions: git/master
            Reporter: Jon Siwek
            Assignee: Robin Sommer
             Fix For: 2.2

This branch is in bro, pysubnettree, broccoli, broccoli-python, and binpac repos and fixes various defects reported by Coverity.

I can't remember any of great significance.  There were mostly two categories:

* issues that are unlikely to be exercised, but could cause a modest problem (though there's often bigger issues if those code paths were ever taken...)
* issues that are likely to be exercised, but haven't posed much of a problem (logically or empirically)

I'd say just merge it in before the 2.2 release, but cherry-picking or postponing altogether also seem ok.
