In the case of Coverity, I think it all boils down to whether or not
we allow them to file bug reports against Extras packages.

AFAIK, we allow anyone to file bug reports against Extras packages.  How
and through what means the bugs were uncovered has never had any
bearing on the matter.

Why should it matter in the case of Coverity ?
