I am just creating a valid PR for a Boost library. How that library uses
code coverage is not my problem. I just do not want the validity of a PR
being affected by how code coverage works for a library. I do realize
that Github still allows a maintainer to merge a PR even when some CI
testing fails. I just do not want code coverage, rather than correctness
of code, determining whether a PR is merged or not. I am certainly not
going to change a correct PR based on a code coverage report, unless
that report shows me somehow that my change is logically incorrect, but
I doubt that code coverage can do that.
