Rename LcovMerger to CoverageOutputGenerator. #6137

iirina commented Sep 12, 2018

This renaming is essential because LcovMerger does so much more than merging lcov files (e.g.parses gcov files, filters source files, etc) and soon it will do some more (e.g. filter out sources based on the source file manifest). Keeping this name only introduces confusion when someone unfamiliar with the code tries to understand it.

RELNOTES: LcovMerger was renamed to CoverageOutputGenerator.

Please use
