find: unknown predicate `-not -path '

See original GitHub issue

We see this error on CircleCI builds: eg:

find: unknown predicate `-not -path './bower_components/**' -not -path './node_modules/**' -not -path './vendor/**''
    Error running `['find', '/home/circleci/zulip', "-not -path './bower_components/**' -not -path './node_modules/**' -not -path './vendor/**'", '-type', 'f', '-name', '*.gcno', '', '-exec', 'gcov', '-pb', '', '{}', '+']`: Command '['find', '/home/circleci/zulip', "-not -path './bower_components/**' -not -path './node_modules/**' -not -path './vendor/**'", '-type', 'f', '-name', '*.gcno', '', '-exec', 'gcov', '-pb', '', '{}', '+']' returned non-zero exit status 1.

When running:

pip install codecov && codecov

Pinning the version of codecov==2.0.15 fixes this (since it doesn’t use find.)

We use buildpack-deps:bionic-scm as our base image for CI builds.

Our CI config file -

Let me know if you need any more details to debug this.

#217 removes find command entirely using python to do file searching and excluding. It can help here too because too many inconsistencies with find command and not supported on Windows.
