Pylint configuration

Pylint requires configuration via a .pylintrc configuration file as detailed in Pylint's documentation.

If you don't specify your custom configuration file we use our default below. We suggest to add your own configuration file into your repository root directory to be able to specify your coding and quality standards.

.pylintrc
