The structure of the test package follows that from pylint itself.
It is fairly simple: create a module starting with
func_ followed by
a test name, and insert into it some code. The tests will run pylint
against these modules. If the idea is that no messages now occur, then
that is fine, just check to see if it works by running
Ideally, add some pylint error suppression messages to the file to prevent spurious warnings, since these are all tiny little modules not designed to do anything so there's no need to be perfect.
It is possible to make tests with expected error output, for example, if
adding a new message or simply accepting that pylint is supposed to warn.
messages directory contains a list of files which should match the
name of the test and contain error type, line number, class and expected text.
These are useful to quickly add "expected messages".
