Needs to add some subtasks to fixing
Create please subtasks or close the task

@Apachez, what exactly do you want to fix here?

Its mainly a headsup for maintainers to go through the report and fix whats possible.

Without subtasks, it is going to be dead.
@Apachez It is not clear what you want to fix exactly. Fix all and do all working well could be related to any task.

Since the task as worded is no actionable, I'm closing it as invalid. I'm not against using any tools that might help us, but we need to be sure what the task is (e.g., to implement regular scanning, or to fix specific suggestions from a scan...).
