Codecov bot only posting to PRs after multiple commits


Starting a couple weeks ago, Codecov’s automated comments on pull requests to one of our GitHub repositories largely stopped being posted, unless the PR author pushed more commits to the PR branch after initial creation.

In some of these late comments (example), Codecov reported coverage for the old commit, with a warning that the PR head & covered commit differed, and it never updated for the later commit.

For some of the PRs that didn’t get comments (example), the Codecov page for the commit (corresponding example) states “Waiting for CI to complete” even though the CI did complete. (I see now that our Travis builds stopped a couple days ago, though that doesn’t explain all of the observed behavior.)

Actual Results

Codecov did not comment unless further commits were pushed.
