Perhaps DARPA should get Coverty, at least at its present level into the public domain.

Making the tool available is a side issue. If someone hired such a hacker for the next 12 months, or even if Linus, or Alan, or anyone else with a track record wanted to sit and spend August checking and fixing Coverity reports that could be done right now, no problem. It doesn't require putting Coverity into the public domain, which is good because AFAIU there's actually a significant difference between the technology "developed largely at public expense" and the nice shiny Coverity product.
