As a pulp developer, I see meaningful docstrings on all modules and functions/methods
Our docs currently require that docstring be added to all new functions/methods, so this primarily applies retroactively to existing code that does not yet help tell this story.
The pulp_openstack plugin attempts this using the pep257 package, but adds exceptions for every warning/error and is thus rendered effectively useless. Nevertheless, it (or something like it) can be used to find errors in our docstrings, with the most common error apparently being a lack of them.
pep257 may be deprecated in favor of pydocstyle, but it's not clear to me which is "better".
This should probably also apply to all plugins, and may qualify as an epic story.
