[openstack-dev] [all] Call for check: is your project ready for pylint 1.7.1?

​Is there a driving reason why this has to be done in the Pike cycle? The
requirements freeze is coincident with Pike-3 and your two week deadline
puts it pretty close to that date so I'm going to assume that you will have
to make this change before p3.

Trove is another of the projects that went down in flames with the new
pylint and I'm wondering what benefit this has for projects in general. The
notion of accumulating more technical debt (enable pylint 1.7.1 and disable
the new tests, cleanup code later) strikes me as less than ideal.
