"newbie mode" that contains helpful hints that don't work as lints #1737
It would be interesting to have a "newbie mode" (basically another lint group) that points out various features in your code, not necessarily suggesting fixes or anything.
Thoughts? Ideas for similar newbie hint-lints?
My main concern is discoverability of such a group. Newcomers have enough on their plate starting out with Rust. I can tell my students to enable it, but how will someone who finds Rust on their own know about such lints? We can't "detect" newcomers, because we can't differentiate them from someone who just created a small crate to test something.
Once clippy is stable, we could consider this by asking the rustc devs to
