Bug Description

Binary package hint: python-coverage

I have some code that all current versions of python-coverage in various active Ubuntu distributions do not generate proper coverage reports.

Meanwhile, there is a new upstream release available:

I installed 3.0 by hand, and it does work on the code I found problems with. So, there is no point in filing that specific code, I don't think, but rather simply a bug asking for the new upstream release to be packed for the next release of Ubuntu.
