Customize Common Test Reports?

The code that generates the result HTML is in
lib/common_test/src/test_server_ctrl.erl; the HTML is *very*
hard-coded. I found it by looking in the OTP source code for the
string "Unexpected I/O log", which appears in the CT index and seemed
fairly distinctive.

As I see it, your simplest option is to write your own CT hook that
generates your own HTML report and writes it to a separate file. If I
were doing this, I'd look at mustache/handlebars libraries for Erlang,
so as to decouple the HTML from the data.

That assumes that userData is available to CT hooks -- I haven't checked.
