Add an argument to the bash uploader to specify the directory location for the upload_file
Currently, the bash script has
hardwired. I would like to propose that an argument be introduced that could replace “/tmp”. Our test suite takes a few hours to run and go thru the gcov processing. At the end, we have had many cases where the upload file never makes it to codecov.io (which is a separate issue). The upload_file in /tmp then gets deleted. If we could specify a different path, that file would be saved, and it would be possible to manually upload the file later without having to go thru the full gcov processing from scratch. If the upload process were more reliable, this might not be needed.
A proposed name for the argument is --upload-dir but I leave it to the developers to decide.
bash -c “bash <(curl -s https://codecov.io/bash) --upload-dir /scratch/username”
