What it does#
Checks for undocumented public module definitions.
Why is this bad?#
Public modules should be documented via docstrings to outline their purpose and contents.
Generally, module docstrings should describe the purpose of the module and list the classes, exceptions, functions, and other objects that are exported by the module, alongside a one-line summary of each.
If the module is a script, the docstring should be usable as its "usage" message.
If the codebase adheres to a standard format for module docstrings, follow that format for consistency.
