Project Description

The regression tests in Libgcrypt could benefit from having memory leak detection checks. These checks could be run optionally during build time. One well suited tool for this purpose is Valgrind.

Valgrind is a programming tool for memory debugging, memory leak detection, and profiling.

Goal for this Hackweek

Adding automated Valgrind checks would help to spot memory leaks and, hopefully, we can find some.
