Easiest way is via git. see
https://freeswitch.org/stash/projects/FS/repos/freeswitch/browse  (we use
stash which is bitbucket or sorta like github)

Thank you. 


And how to get the latest master branch?

The correct way to do this would be to run this on the latest master branch
of freeswitch and file and potential issues as security issues in Jira.
Yes, many hundreds of issues have been fixed since 1.4 (1.4 is now eol) and
we make use of static analysis tools.  Static analysis tools in general have
very high false positive rate, we do our best to address issues found with
them, but they require much more than running a tool and getting a report.
Every single one of those reports needs to be investigated, confirmed if its
actually valid (typically 80%+ are not), reported.

Static analysis tool Cppcheck discovered many errors in FreeSWITCH v1.4 code
(memory leaks, resource leaks, double frees,...):


- memleak (76 occurances)

- memleakOnRealloc (12 occurances)

- resourceLeak (21 occurances)

- doubleFree (more than 100 occurances)


Is this known to the FreeSWITCH community, and has there been any work on it
in more recent versions of FreeSWITCH?
