Could you please be more specific, exactly what environment variables
do you set in your autogen.input?

FWIW I usually just run coverage for some area of the codebase, using:


There we do not set any coverage-related environment variables in
autogen.input, just use gb_GCOV=YES when building the relevant files as
you already do.

I send out bug stats in the ESC agenda as an attachment on weekly basis
(it was 240K last time), without problems.

If you want to refer to large files, then sending a link to them is
probably better.
