If we are to avoid drowning in a swamp of pylint "exceptions", we need to build a filter that allows us to explicitly say "I know this exception exists, but I want to pass anyway".

there is some pylint type string you can put to turn off certain types of errors. Or we could just diff errors to find new ones?

I would rather we have something a bit more formal than diffs. I need to think about it.

How strict do we want to be about python style? I wrote an automatic style checker, in fact to help Matt L with his code (simple wrapper to pylint). Comes up with a whole bunch of errors, many in my code.

I notice we had pychecker in 40python_extras.bash, but it's commented out. Any reason? Also, is there any preference for pychecker over pylint?

who knows why I took it out. I think it had build problems on some system.

I'd say toss in pylint then we can use:

  1. pylint: disable msg: C2342

where applicable. We can have people work on that at the pre-CM session. :)
