I was talking to ggainey about some of the automation checks we have in pulp (commit validation, style/lint checks, changelog, etc) and how it might be frustrating for new devs. I've heard the same feedback from other contributors such as galaxy.

We need to provide an easy way for developers to run our CI checks locally. I've seen other projects (bandersnatch[0], black[1], celery[2], etc) use pre-commit:

None of the individual bookeeping tasks are bad - they're all great individually - but en masse, they cause a lot of friction for the dev, which is a good way to get people to not-contribute to your project


  1. "black/flake"
  2. "check for issue/noissue"
  3. "check for coverage/nocoverage"
  4. "check issue is in project"
  5. "check for CHANGES existence"
  6. "check that CHANGES file has an allowed suffix"

are all checks that happen serially in travis, and which therefore will fail individually. So if you're particularly dense (like I have been on frequent occasions), that can mean SIX separate pushes/builds, just to get to the point where travis will tell you if your code even builds/works.

We can start a new directory on plugin_template or use .travis one. It needs to be customizable by plugins, as only pulp_rpm needs [nocoverage]. Maybe calling a script "": It would be helpful to have a makefile for facilitating setting and using the pre-commit

        pip install --upgrade pip
        pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
        make setup-pre-commit

        pre-commit install
        pre-commit install-hooks

        rm -rf .tox/
        pre-commit run --files $$(find -regex '.*\.\(py\|yaml\|yml\|md\)') -v

I never got the notification, I like your PoC, I think we should be working on it after 3.6

One of the problems that was raised today during open floor is that users could have different flake8 plugins installed with different versions. We need to figure out how to handle this issue.
