PEP 8 Explicitly State Variable Names convention? #535 #545
There is a response in StackOverflow to the question: What is the naming convention in Python for variable and function names?. It says see PEP 8 and makes the statement "Use the function naming rules: lowercase with words separated by underscores as necessary to improve readability."
That statement is found in other sources and confirmed by experienced Python programmers. But, PEP 8 does not yet support that statement.
Hello, and thanks for your contribution!
I'm a bot set up to make sure that the project can legally accept your contribution by verifying you have signed the PSF contributor agreement (CLA).
Unfortunately we couldn't find an account corresponding to your GitHub username on bugs.python.org (b.p.o) to verify you have signed the CLA (this might be simply due to a missing "GitHub Name" entry in your b.p.o account settings). This is necessary for legal reasons before we can look at your contribution. Please follow the steps outlined in the CPython devguide to rectify this issue.
Thanks again to your contribution and we look forward to looking at it!
