TL;DR: I don’t know how to configure PR comments without having build status updated (green or otherwise).
PR comments are great for letting the user see what the coverage of their change is. This is one of the top features of codecov that I need.
But, due to the way bitbucket works, I don’t want codecov to report any information in build status. This is because I have some builds that have coverage and different builds that don’t. The builds that don’t have a reduced number of builds reported, so I have to set bitbucket to enforce a minimum required number of builds lower than what gets reported on the codecov builds. This provides an opportunity for committers to merge when they should be blocked.
If I could have codecov post a comment on the PR, but not report status to the build itself, then it would work.
