Do you mean, showing it in a natural language form, or machine-parsable?

If the later, there was a patch series doing essentially this:


It doesn't seem to have been merged. Phil, what happened to it?

Seems reasonable. Should be good technical warm-ups if people agree this
is a good idea.

I tend to agree with you, but the idea has explicitly been rejected in
the past. The problem with an option like this is that it would also
disable the advices that may be added in the future. By letting people
disable the advices one by one, people see new advices as they arrive.
You may think of it like "do not show this message again" tickboxes in
some graphical user interfaces.

Too controversial area for newcommers I guess ;-).
