Add flake8 config file #61836
Sep 5, 2019
I'm not sure we want this for the same reason tox.ini was removed. I don't include config for things we don't use. They get out of date wrt the config for the things we do use and people assume that the lint tool should run without errors when we can't say that because we don't actively maintain it. @mattclay will need to make that decision when he gets back from pto, though.
Configuration should only be included for tools we're using. If there is interest in enforcing flake8 rules in CI then it should be added as a topic to the core meeting agenda so it can be discussed.
We would need to decide whether or not it is useful, especially given existing tests, as well as what configuration to use if it were enabled.
