That's really super useful of you Daniel. I wasn't aware that such a service
existed for code coverage. Thank you.

I don't suppose you'd know the answer to this question though: Travis CI's
reporting is not great, it either reports success or failure and not *what*
failed nor *why*. Specifically, if for example a build fails, I'd like to
know which source files and what the compiler errors were. Similarly, if a
unit test fails, I want to know which one and what the error was.

Do you know if this can be done?
