invalid-todo-tag (TD001)#

Derived from the flake8-todos linter.

What it does#

Checks that a TODO comment is labelled with "TODO".

Why is this bad?#

Ambiguous tags reduce code visibility and can lead to dangling TODOs. For example, if a comment is tagged with "FIXME" rather than "TODO", it may be overlooked by future readers.

Note that this rule will only flag "FIXME" and "XXX" tags as incorrect.


# FIXME(ruff): this should get fixed!

Use instead:

# TODO(ruff): this is now fixed!
