I didn't see a limit on the number of project members you could sign

Access to the detailed analysis results is permitted only to members
of scanned projects, partially in order to ensure that potential
security issues may be resolved before the general public sees them.

Our approach is that of Responsible Disclosure. We provide the
analysis results to project developers only, and do not reveal details
to the public until an issue has been fixed. A portion of the defects
discovered by the Scan could reveal exploitable security
