What changes did you make? (Give an overview)

Updates the "Working with Plugins" doc to suggest a few ESLint plugins to lint ESLint plugins with. The goal is to generally increase the quality of ESLint plugins and increase the usability of ESLint plugin rules.

  • eslint
  • eslint-plugin-eslint-plugin
    • This is a powerful tool we have for helping plugin developers create more-reliable rules with better usability, and for helping plugin developers migrate off deprecated ESLint APIs to modern replacements
    • For example, this plugin could help us eventually make rule schemas mandatory for rules with options using the require-meta-schema rule (#14709), or remove support for deprecated function-based rules using the prefer-object-rule rule
    • I consider this one to be the highest-impact plugin that we could encourage plugin developers to use, and we should do as much as we can to publicize it
  • eslint-plugin-node
    • ESLint plugins contain Node code

These three plugins are plugins included or soon-to-be-included in the generator-eslint plugin blueprint, and are widely used in ESLint plugins.
