Dear Python developers,
PEP 8 says:
"Always use self for the first argument to instance methods.
Always use cls for the first argument to class methods.”
But what about metaclasses?
PEP 3115 seems to suggest `cls`, and so do many Python books, however tools such as flake8 don’t seem to like it.
Is there a consensus opinion, and should PEP 8 be updated?
