Subject Re: False coverage decrease accusations by Coveralls

But the detailed report you linked to is exactly where I got the
information about what existing lines have (purportedly) been uncovered
from. It's true that the master branch changed in the meantime, but
those commits only concerned formatting and changing the field
serialVersionUID in BigFraction and Fraction. I don't understand exactly
what this variable is for, but I doubt that it has something to do with
the respective lines now being uncovered. In fact, the corresponding
build lists the two files and under the menu "COVERAGE CHANGED",
but it doesn't actually report any change in coverage, so maybe this has
something to do with the bug.
