The answers to many questions tagged python on CodeReview start with or otherwise include references to PEP-0008, the official Python Style Guide. Many reviews include comments on use of whitespace (e.g. around operators and arguments), variable naming conventions, etc., all of which are addressed in this document.
Is it possible to add a reference to this Style Guide when the python tag is used, within the Ask a Question page itself? It would reduce on the duplication of content in the answers and allow the reviewers to focus more on what the code does than how it's laid out. Something like:
It looks like you are writing a question about some python code. Consider applying the guidelines in the Official Style Guide before submitting your code for review.
Users who have already read and followed the style guide can ignore it, but it might prove useful to those who aren't yet aware of it.
I'm sure there are similar documents for other languages that could also be referenced in the same way, although I am aware that some languages have more than one school when it comes to these style conventions.
