Excerpts from Akihiro Motoki's message of 2017-06-09 03:53:34 +0900:
> Hi all,
> Is your project ready for pylint 1.7.1?
> If you use pylint in your pep8 job, it is worth checked.
> Our current version of pylint is 1.4.5 but it is not safe in python 3.5.
> The global-requirements update was merged once [1],
> However, some projects (at least neutron) are not ready for pylint
> 1.7.1 and it was reverted [2].
> it is reasonable to give individual projects time to cope with pylint 1.7.1.
> I believe bumping pylint version to 1.7.1 (or later) is the right
> direction in long term.
> I would suggest to make your project ready for pylint 1.7.1 soon (two
> weeks or some?)
> You can disable new rules in pylint 1.7.1 temporarily and clean up
> your code later
> as neutron does [3]. As far as I checked, most rules are reasonable
> and worth enabled.
> Thanks,
> Akihiro Motoki

I thought we had linters in a list that didn't require the versions
to be synced across projects, to allow projects to update at their
own pace. Did we undo that work?
