I'd love it if coverage gave me an error if it encountered unrecognised directives in .coveragerc
Spot the problems with these files:
source = foo
branch = True
Did you notice that branch was in the report section when it should have been in run? You probably did, because you were deliberately looking for mistakes and it's a short file, but it's very easy to miss at a glance!
fail_under = 100
I cheated here. That's absolutely fine if you're using 4.0aSomething, but 3.7.1 doesn't support that directive (#314) which is entirely reasonable, but it's sure unpleasant to discover that you thought you were mandating 100% coverage but actually weren't...!
Some sort of "I don't know what to do with foo!" reporting, even if just a warning/informational message, would be incredibly useful please!
Hmm, 4.0 is getting closer, but it has been a while. I would estimate a 4.0 final in perhaps two-month's time. requires.io doesn't like requirement specs like coverage>=4.0a6 ? Or direct bitbucket or github urls?
