Linting  is a software engineering practice which make the code
more readable and maintainable by improving its consistency and
avoiding potential programming mistakes.
Gradle provides a core plugin for the ‘checkstyle’ tool  which
provides such facility. The lint actions are triggered when running
There are a lot reported errors that will need to be fixed
incrementally in the future. We ensure that new errors will not be

corresponding to the sum of errors currently found in the framework
and in the official plugins.
