Infer coverage for partial builds from branch master

It would be nice to infer coverage for partial builds from branch master.

We run a mono repo and we don’t always run coverage for every sub repo on every PR to save CI time.

We upload reports with -F <topic> to specify a topic. It would be nice if codecov would infer coverage for the other -F <topic> as the coverage of the branch commit if nothing is reported before the timeout.

This would make the coverage accurate with respect to a merge to master.

Great idea @nickpalmer!! We are calling this “carryforward” flags where we carryforward any coverage not updated from wherever it was most recently run. Looking at building this in the next several sprint cycles.

Awesome! Looking forward to seeing it roll out.

If you need a beta tester, let me know. I would be happy to turn it on and let you know how it is working on our repository! :slight_smile:

Thanks @nickpalmer – still building this. I’ll let you know when we get to beta!!
