Topic: servo's plugin requirements

However, my understanding is that:

Access to full type information. For example in let x =; the lint wants to find out whether the struct definition for the concrete type of x has one of the previously mentioned custom attributes, even if bar is a trait method that returns an associated type.

is not realistic from a stability and forward compat POV and that this will largely mean that we forever support only servo on the plugin interface

I thought there were ideas for solving it via Pin and some other language based magic instead of a custom lint?

maybe having that lint in clippy is more maintainable that having to maintain an entire plugin interface for it?^^

Its a very special kind of lint.

At least according to servo people.
