Why aren't you announcing them?

You might also consider providing an announcement when new results are
available at a significant point in time for those interested in this
sort of thing. "Significant point in time" might be after a major
merge or passing through the release process security gate.

The announcement also raises awareness for the folks who are not
following the project on Coverity Scan. Ideally, your announcement
would be picked up by users of OpenSSL. They would register their
projects and start raising the bar in their software, too.
