Your asking make sense; You/Nova is looking for engineering time to
focus on other development more importants. I would to help with my
humble experience.

 * Let developer a chance to know about what values was expected when
   he broke a test.

 * Let developer to know what to use between warn or warning instead
   of loosing time by looking in the module what was used or doing a
   coin flip.

Contributors are expected to read HACKING.rst and some of these rules
can be tested by gate.

My point was not to discredit your opinion (My phrasing can be
wrong I'm non-native english) I believe that you and contributors in
general like me are working to make Nova better. Usually in
opensource software contributors are welcome to help even if it is to
fix a typo and I was hoped to help.
