adding entries to “sonar.jacoco.reportPaths” does not impact the reported code coverage
steps to reproduce
run 2 test tasks with different coverages, and add them both to “sonar.jacoco.reportPaths”
run the JacocoMerge and set “sonar.jacoco.reportPaths” = .destinationFile
How to manage jacoco data should also probably be mentioned in the “Analyzing Custom Source Sets” section of the wiki.
