Branch coverage of an abc.abstractmethod with just a doc string in the method, shows the decorator line as uncovered branch that never reaches "exit".
import abc class AExample(object): @abc.abstractmethod # exit def method(self): """doc """ class Example(AExample): def method(self): return True Example().method()
When I replace the doc string with "pass", the decorator line is a covered branch. However the pass statement is not covered at all.
class AExample(object): @abc.abstractmethod def method(self): pass # uncovered
