I would appreciate the inclusion of my patch.
It's just small extension for ignore testing some apps.
Original code is here: http://djangosnippets.org/snippets/2211/
My suggestion is to add
# Packages for test exlusion COVERAGE_IGNORE_TESTS = getattr(settings, 'COVERAGE_IGNORE_TESTS', )
to the django_coverage/settings.py
def build_suite(self, *args, **kwargs): suite = super(CoverageRunner, self).build_suite(*args, **kwargs) if not args and not getattr(settings, 'RUN_ALL_TESTS', False): tests =  for case in suite: pkg = case.__class__.__module__.split('.') if pkg not in settings.COVERAGE_IGNORE_TESTS: tests.append(case) suite._tests = tests return suite
to django_coverage/coverage_runner.py in CoverageRunner class.
Now we can exclude some tests from test suite just list app names like this
COVERAGE_IGNORE_TESTS = ( 'localeurl', 'django', 'debug_toolbar', 'modeltranslation', 'mptt' )
I just won't install hg for forking and pull requesting of three lines of code :) Thanks!
