I test my project in a Docker container and then examine covered lines in PyCharm on my host machine. Currently PyCharm can only load XML reports in Cobertura format and does actually have an issue due to expecting absolute file paths there. JetBrains guys are going to fix the issue I believe, but I wonder if we can add an option in coverage.py to produce .coverage file with relative paths so that one could run tests in a Docker container and then produce report on host machine? If .coverage contains relative paths, PyCharm would hopefully be able to load them directly without producing intermediate XML files.
