We tend to write more code than documentation which is bad when it
means hidden useful features. There is a "documentation" tab on
http://www.logilab.org/project/pylint but maybe what people would like
to find about is not there.

As you are saying "pylint --generate-rcfile" is the way to go. 

Where would you be looking for that information if you did not already
know it? Tell me and I will put it there :)
