Yes, pylint imports your modules.

Thanks for the notice. We'll try to fix it, or update the dependencies
if we're not able to get around that.

This is part of the coding standard checking part in pylint. In our
mind, having one letter identifiers is not a good thing, and therefore
pylint generates a warning when it meets one. 

This behaviour can be customized though.
