proposal: testing: support automatic multiple package coverage #21126
Currently it's very hard to support coverage for the tested package and all the dependencies of that package.
In order to do this today, one would need to do something like this:
The problem is that this would also list the standard library dependencies, which is not really useful and it's hard to write as well (see the fact that one needs to append the name of the tested package to actually get the coverage for it). The above command also doesn't work on Windows.
The other option would be to use:
This however will not show dependencies from GOPATH.
As such, I'm proposing adding a magical keyword named
This comes up pretty often, see: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/GO-1541 for the number of voters / watchers or duplicate issues. It is true that the IDE could generate the list of packages but the users that do not use such a tool wouldn't be able to benefit from it.
Please note this is different from #6909.
