comment When to (enforce) linting in a software project
Totally agree with the first three paragraphs. Not sure about the last one though @Bart. I've seen a lot of technical debt pile up in projects where successful lint runs where required... eventually. Unless a cleanup is regularly enforced, you finish up with a massive stack of "to do's" that people are afraid to touch because their system is currently working "as is". (-:

I'd even suggest having a successful lint run as a part of the checkin trigger maybe. Allow for a mechanism for explicitly declaring exceptions though.
