The addition of an option to "ratchet" or update the minimum thresholds for build failure would be very useful. This request is inspired by and heavily related to
JENKINS-8326 for the Cobertura coverage plugin.
Ideally we'd be able to set the publisher to automatically update the minimum thresholds to higher values when a project's observed value is higher than a previously set minimum. This enables a project to help enforce that code coverage cannot decrease over time as a code quality standard.
