This session will include the following subject(s):

Unittests for openstack-dev/hacking:

The tests coverage of openstack-dev/hacking is very poor since docstring tests cannot cover all cases of violation. Lets have a chat about how we could write unittests for it.

(Session proposed by Zhongyue Luo)

Review and prune hacking rules:

We've had a full cycle of enforcement of the hacking guidelines now. While that's wonderful, it has become evident that some of them, like "use except Exception: not just except:" are either nonsensicle OR - do make sense but we do not have good verbage describing why.

I think we probably want to drop some of them from the guide and from enforcement, and additionally we should potentially think about adding MAY and MUST wording to hacking, so that we can include some informational best practices that we never attempt to enforce.
