Thanks for open up this thread.

I support the idea to have the section getting started with IDE. Not to force to use any particular IDE, but to help people understand how to use pep8, pylint, flake8 etc. for the IDE of choice.

(I still confused what are the difference, any why we need all of them)

I personally had hard time to understand how to get my starting contribution to pass all the test (especially the formatting one) in Travis CI. 

Tips with particular will be IDE will be cool. I am using PyDev, but also trying to use Sublime as it seem to be famous around. Still, couldn't figure out how to use it efficiently for Odoo / Python. I would be nice to know how other people use it.

But I think it would benefit and accelerate many people who want to be part of OCA.

Agreed, contributions welcome:

Additionally, I suggest:
-The file is missing from most repos, we should fix that
- The document it points at, OCA/maintainer-tools/", 
should be a "getting started" text instead of the actual coding standards.
