The Future of Clippy


#1

Changes are coming to clippy!


#2

Would it not be useful to retain the ability to use clippy with nightly even after it becomes available for use with stable? Or is that not feasible?


#3

I had that same thought at first, but it turns out they mean something different by ‘blocking nightlies’:

It means that if clippy doesn’t compile there won’t be a nightly that day. This is the case for RLS/rustfmt/etc.

So they’re not going to remove the ability to run Clippy on nightly - in fact, quite the opposite, there should never be a nightly version where Clippy won’t work.
